PSA: Windows 10 Updates
Customers with Windows 10 computers on their simulators should not update. When Microsoft sends prompts (those annoying pop-up windows) asking you to update, do not do so. These updates will conflict with the simulator software.
On the Road with Cat® Simulators
Cat Simulators Account Manager, Curt Meyer, has been on the road out west. He had the good fortune to introduce Cat Simulators training technology to construction, mining, and workforce associations in Denver, Colorado. Products included our Underground Load Haul Dump, Hydraulic Excavator, M-Series Motor Grader, and Dozer Simulator Systems. “At one point, I had miners, excavation operators, and association executives all sharing training best practices with each other around the simulator. Even though it was raining and then snowing outside, we were able to do our pre-shift walkarounds and task training in the comfort of our training room,” shares Meyer.
