KUALA LUMPUR: A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed between 3D and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions provider Dassault Systemes, Might-Meteor Advanced Manufacturing (MMAM) and Feiran Technology.
MMAM is a joint-venture company between the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (Might) and Multimedia Technology Enhancement Operations (Meteor).
The agreement covers the exploration of virtual training applications for human capital development and was signed by Samson Khaou, general manager Asia Pacific South, Dassault Systemes, Jasmin Baba, executive director of MMAM and Shabudin Md Saman, managing director of Feiran Technology.
“We firmly believe that sustainable human capital development can be achieved through our technology and are excited in being able to help build the leading edge capabilities in Malaysia,” said Khaou during the signing ceremony.
These virtual training applications, or “serious games” applications, will be targeted at specific industries in Malaysia including aerospace maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) training, as well as safety training in the oil and gas industry.
Under the MoU, MMAM will leverage Dassault’s 3DVIA technology to develop applications to incorporate game-based learning into its human capital development programme.
PLM solutions company Feiran Technology in partnership with Dassault, will work towards identifying and driving a community of serious games applications developers to create the virtual training content.
Leveraging on the 3DVIA Studio development platform, local developers will have access to a worldwide community of 3DVIA users with personalised 3DVIA accounts, user forums, online content, applications hosting and marketplace infrastructure.
This commitment to serious games application development is in line with the Government goal of becoming a high-income nation by 2020 and seeks to enable MMAM to collaboratively build and coordinate Industry-Government partnerships in high technology human capital development, Dassault Systemes said. — GABEY GOH
