ADVISOR Enterprise is a Training Management System. ADVISOR speeds Training Needs Analysis (TNA); simplifies the management of training; and drives training efficiency. This is achieved through a digital model that continually realigns training courses/activities with operational requirements to identify gaps, duplications, and training with minimal value. Further enhancements are attained by uncovering cost drivers; forecasting and comparing the costs of viable delivery options; improving resource allocation; and identifying/mitigating bottlenecks. ADVISOR is built around the ADDIE model with the added flexibility of starting the analysis at any level. ADVISOR is made up of 8 modules that can be used separately or in any combination. Read More.
To find out the cause of a performance problem and potential solutions. In other words, before assuming that training is needed. ADVISOR Needs Assessment module improves decisions by zeroing-in on the source of the problem and identifying solutions that can produce the desired level of productivity. Moreover, ADVISOR highlights actions that will provide the greatest impact, and generate audit trail to support recommendations. Read More.
To find out who needs to be trained, on what and why. Improves training decisions by identifying & prioritizing knowledge, skills & attitudes (KSA) needed by each job to meet organization missions/goals. In addition to establishing a digital thread that ties training needs to operational requirements, ADVISOR assesses the need & priority for training using the Difficult, Importance & Frequency (DIF) model and KSA Gap analysis.

To identify the most effective and efficient way to deliver training. Improves training decisions by rating the effectiveness as well as forecasting and comparing the costs of alternate blends of delivery options. In addition to maximizing training efficiency, ADVISOR minimizes costly errors by assessing the risks associated with the introduction of new technology. In summary, ADVISOR Training Design module provides a step-by-step approach for conducting Training Media Analysis (TMA) or Option Analysis and generating Training Plans. Read More.
To assess the functional requirements of training devices, immersive technologies (XR) including virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality, and simulators; based on training needs and performance objectives. Identifies visual, tactile, olfactory, affective, and auditory sensory cues needed to practice tasks, within realistic environments, under pre-set conditions to attain the desired level of competency. In addition, ADVISOR takes into account elements within the virtual world and how users interact with each. Read More.
To find out how much funds, personnel and resources are needed for planned training activities within any time-period. Compiles data from missions/goals, competencies, systems, jobs, tasks, training requirements, and courses/activities to (a) identify planned training activities for any time-period; (b) forecast funds, personnel and resources requirements; (c) identify venues for driving training effectiveness and efficiency and (d) assess training impact.

To keep projects on time and within budget. Achieved through the development of realistic project plans. The plan evolves by setting-up phases and tasks; identifying critical paths, milestones, dependencies, and constraints; assigning personnel and resources; and monitoring progress in real time. In addition to anticipating potential problems, and facilitating the implementation of corrective measures, ADVISOR improves resource allocation by tracking the utilization rates of personnel and resources.

To improve performance by zeroing in on the source of the problem and identifying solutions that can produce the desired level of productivity. Moreover, ADVISOR highlights actions with greatest potential impact by assessing the feasibility of implementing plausible solutions; forecasting the costs, benefits, and Return on Investment (ROI) of each intervention; and generating audit trail to support recommendations.

Training Life Cycle Management:
To manage training requirements and uncover venues to drive training effectiveness and efficiency. ADVISOR maintains training efficiency over time by continually assessing the impact of change to missions, systems, jobs, tasks, policies, technologies, throughput, and so forth on training content and activities, as well as budget, personnel, and resource requirements. This is attained through a digital-twin model that continually maps training courses/activities to operational requirements to identify gaps, duplications, and training with minimal value. Results including personnel/resource requirements, cost drivers, bottlenecks, and deficiencies along with remedial actions are quickly and concisely communicated through dashboards. Read More.
