Introduction

A possible solution that lands in between Off-the-shelf and Custom-built solutions is the Tailor-made solution. Tailor-made solution utilizes a core quantitative model. This solution requires fewer changes to the Off-the-shelf solution. The good thing about Tailor-made solutions is that you will often be able to get almost a Custom-built solution for a cost slightly above an Off-the-shelf solution. Under this solution we provide any or all of the following features. The cost of creating a custom made solutuion will depend on the extent of change required.

 

thumbnail

Add Scenarios

Give an additional twist to the story line by adding a new scenario with changed environmental conditions.

thumbnail

Delete Scenarios

Delete scenarios as soon as they become redundant or out of context.

thumbnail

Modify Scenarios

Change scenarios incrementally as some new elements have come into play.

thumbnail

Add Variables

Adding input variables or interim variables is just a matter of hours. Output variables too can be added in a jiffy!

thumbnail

Delete Variables

Delete a complete set of variables and bring in a new set, if the need be. Create more complexity with nil coding!

thumbnail

Change Variables

Change variables on the fly and create new linkages. Also create more interim variables and sub-variables, if required.

Introduction

If you have a GAME IDEA we have a game plan! Since you are the best person to know your Organization why should others design your simulations? Allow your employees’/ students’ creative minds to work and design simulations that are hundred percent relevant for you. Very few companies that use serious games try to make their actual organizations the basis of their simulation, most do not. Creating a custom solution is not only far more effective but also now within range of most companies. Giving the participants something exceptionally challenging, unexpected, applicable and engaging will surprise and delight them. Today’s learners are exceptionally pragmatic. They believe customization is the norm.

Custom-built built business simulations are built around three things:

1. Goals of your training program

2. Corporate strategy

3. Organizational uniqueness

Our multi-phase and integrated approach combines advanced development tools and design expertise, resulting in a customized application with a professional appearance, sophisticated modeling, and comprehensive support.

With every project we:

  • - Review your project's pedagogy & requirements, and work with you to explore opportunities for analysis and visualization
  • - Design wireframes & full-color mockups specific to the desired learning outcomes
  • - Develop an interactive application, based on a design we develop or one that you already have
  • - Test your application to ensure that it works successfully on a variety of browsers and devices including computers, tablets, and smart phones
  • - 30 days delivery after the finalization of the quantitative model is guaranteed

Custom-built simulations are exceptional tools to reinforce not only the business strategy and leadership competencies of your organization but also they can immensely support training content. Participants are able to practice and apply your content directly to your business. These solutions give participants a very real hands-on experience. Custom business simulations quite possibly score the highest in the area of engagement. This is because the participants know the solution is about their businesses, jobs and roles. By default the participants have an emotional investment in the program.

Simnnovator Program

PRAYOG is a highly flexible AI-based engine. Prayog is a simulation engine dedicated for simulation game creation.

Prayog has the advantage of allowing academicians and other professionals who are experts in their respective areas to give shape to their own creativity and make their learning contents more oriented towards Industry 4.0.

With a lot of focus being put by regulatory bodies like UGC and AICTE on use of technology in teaching-learning methodologies, faculties of several B-Schools have opted for creating innovative simulations using Prayog.

We invite faculties of schools involved in higher education and CXOs in industries to conceptualize and design innovative simulations in a win-win Simnnovator Program.

Simnnovator Program is open only to faculties of few chosen Schools and Corporates

Every Simnnovator is assigned an in-house coordinator in the Humanlinks team to help reduce the creation time and maintain the quality

PRAYOG Platform

PRAYOG-based Simulations

Humanlinks business simulations are built on a powerful software-as-a-service platform so you can run all of your simulation based trainings from one easy-to-use central interface. Because we know that you would rather concentrate on delivering results than learning a new tool, we've made sure that our simulation games are quick to setup, intuitive, and run straight from your browser. Whether you have managers and employees to train in the hospitality, telecommunication, electric utilities, banking, retail, real estate management or public broadcasting industries, we have a solution for you.

The simulation platform allows team members to work virtually if they wish. Each team member has his/her own account that enables him to make decisions and scenarios on his/her own and later compares the outcomes with the other team members.


Simulation Game Flow:

It is possible to utilize the simulation for any number of participants. All teams/ individuals may be starting from exactly the same position, with similar specifications. Similarly, the teams will be faced by the same situational/ environmental conditions during the simulation. We capture participants' information related to competencies and simulated performance.

Features of the platform:

-Customizable: Tailor our default storyline or create your new simulation to suit your specific needs and to match it perfectly to your program
-Scalable: You can add as many participants as you want
-Compatible: The simulations are compatible with all major browsers
-Browser-based: There is no need for software installation or IT assistance
-Realistic: The simulation models reflect real world business challenges and results accurately
-Competitive: Teams compete against each other or against the machine, in team-based programs
-Intuitive: The platform based solution makes moving from one simulation to another a seamless experience
-Flexible: Easy scheduling and distribution of learning materials over internet
-Measurable: Detailed reports to help with the analysis

Custom Design

Creating custom-built simulations is a core offering. Our simulations are based on sound instructional design, visual communication, as well as digital interaction and reflect a thorough understanding of the context of training, audience profiles, performance goals, and business objectives.

We create everything from scratch but without the huge development costs, so we can inject your brand and culture at every step of the process. We create online real-like experiences that engage employees throughout the course and drive real results.

We strive to go 'above and beyond' when it comes to injecting creative and innovative ideas into the design and creation process. We seek to develop a deep understanding of the needs of your organization.
