The Oil and Gas industry is going through ‘the Great Crew Change’ which means the dominant experienced generation will pass on the baton to the millennials over the next few years. Premiums are placed on a newer generation to assume increasing job responsibilities without compromising on the safety and quality. However, the traditional approach of classroom sessions and on-the-job training will not be enough to deliver in-sync to the expectation. The training must be amplified with advanced technologies like Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) that enhances the workforce's knowledge and confidence.

Visualization is one of the greatest abilities of humankind, and with the advancement of computing technology, this concept has been translated as Augmented and Virtual Reality. In the high-risk setup like construction, military, aviation or energy, the visualization techniques can combat the future risks and can even save lives.

The oil and gas industry has introduced AR/VR Immersive Training Systems, which is a 3D engineering tool that connects control room operators, maintenance, and field personnel in a single realistic simulated learning environment. The system also allows to capture and retain operational knowledge and technical expertise during the replacement of the experienced operators with the new workforce. It ensures safety and unhindered plant operation and performance.

Augmented Reality (AR) in the oil and gas sector provides a visual view of the system along with the digital information. It provides graphics, real-time data, and feedback. Field engineers can also perform maintenance task by using AR informative graphics, resulting in the better assessment of the issues and reduced downtimes. It can also be used in the monitoring of the critical equipment for preventive and corrective maintenance in rigs, exploration and production units. It is a great tool for on-the-job training and keeping your workforce updated with latest learnings.

Virtual reality (VR) simulation mimics the real-world scenario. The user can interact with the elements and can even perform tasks virtually through sensory experience. This is one of the best learning tools for the upcoming generation. It enables them to learn about the oil reservoir, rigs, and other equipment in a life-like setting, without being physically present in the hazardous environment. They can also learn about the possible hiccups and the ways to combat them. By using 3D immersive technology, one can zoom in and zoom out the viewing model and can compare the expected system with the actual to learn more about the deviation. Even the real-life mock-ups can be created to train the workforce better.

Benefits of training

· Fast commissioning and start-up time

With the real-world plant training of the operators, supervisors, managers, field engineers, and maintenance staff the company can minimize the project risk considerably and prevent delays due to plant commissioning and start-up.

· Save cost on Infrastructure

The cost of training your personnel in real setup means a huge expenditure for the company in providing the facility, training staff, and equipment. However, with simulations, the personnel can easily learn to operate, manage and maintain the equipment without any expenses on infrastructure. The technology can also assist in case-study of oil drilling platforms, processing plants, rigs, refineries, which comprises of the most complex machinery and process.

· Fast and efficient training

The real-time training requires long duration due to a mix of the classroom session, on-the-job training, plant or site visit. However, VR offers the same level of training without much movement and expenditure in considerably less time. Thus the simulated learning system makes the training process highly reliable, sustainable, efficient, effective, and pocket-friendly.

· Compliance with safety parameters

3D models simulate the real work conditions and enhance the understanding level of the workers and equip them to deal with any risks or unsafe situations and ensure adherence to the safety compliances.

· Improve first-time fix rates

The upstream segment is usually located in the remote or offshore location which means the cost of installation and maintenance is high due to accessibility issues. The technicians can be trained about the facilities in advance before reaching to perform periodic maintenance and first-time fixes.

· Conduct primary diagnosis

AR/VR platform aided with the integration from the sensor's operating system can provide historical data about the facilities and help to conduct training that enables the technician to make an informed decision. The engineer learns to conduct a first-level diagnostic and ascertain the extent of the problem before reaching the site.

The future of Augmented and Virtual reality is moving beyond the ‘virtual view’ to a more ‘data-oriented virtual view’. The idea is to obtain relevant historical and real-time data via enterprise system or IoT- based system to deal with any system error or failure. When the personnel is trained using the simulation and 3D models they are better equipped to deal with real-time situations and can help in creating innovative solutions at a fraction of cost.

Funko Action Figures: Collectible Figurines

Funko Action Figuresare a popular collectible toy that is now being incorporated into the workplace to motivate employees. The action figures have been used as an alternative to the traditional desk calendar or as a prize for top performers. With this type of incentive, employers can expect their employees to feel more motivated and productive.


Many employers have found that Funko Action Figures are a great way to motivate their employees and provide incentives for high performance at work. Funko Action Figures are a popular collectible toy that is now incorporated into the workplace. These small collectibles are given to employees to motivate them. Funko figures were once only available at comic book stores, but now they are being used in offices for this purpose.


The company is called Zappos and they first introduced this idea back in 2009. They gave these figurines to their employees as a way of motivating and rewarding them for their hard work and dedication. Although it’s not very clear why the action figures themselves motivate people, we can see that it has been working well for Zappos as they have continued to use it since 2009. These soft-bodied vinyl figures, often called "Pop!" Figures were originally conceived by Mike Becker and founded by Alan Becker.


The Funko Pop! Action Figure is a line of collectible toys produced by the company Funko LLC. They are typically stylized vinyl figures depicting characters from various media and entertainment. First introduced to the public in 2005, the company was originally founded as a bobblehead company in 1998 and became popular through distribution at chain retailers such as Walmart and Target. The first wave of Funko Pops was based on Disney properties like Mickey Mouse as well as other popular culture icons such as Conan O’Brien and Catwoman.


Funko Action Figures are collectible figurines that often depict pop culture characters. They are often used in the office to motivate employees and provide a sense of community. Funko has established itself as a major player in the toy industry with its trademarked Pop! vinyl figures. This company is taking on new ventures like collecting by introducing Funko Action Figures, for example, Boba Fett from the Star Wars movies. This type of product is sometimes called a 'blind box' because you don't know which figure you're getting until you open it. The Boston-based company, BuzzFeed, has introduced this type of toy into their office to help with team building and morale. The employees at this company seem to have a lot of fun with them.
