Unique Technology Goal

BP Learning Centers

As one of the world’s leaders in oil and gas production, BP provides training and educational programs to their employees all over the globe. This training typically occurred in hotel conference rooms or other settings not specifically conducive for learning. Teammates would often have to travel for training, costing BP valuable hours of productive time and resources. BP was looking for a way to give employees access to high quality training in their home time zones and provide cost-effective, purpose-built learning environments. By building both central and satellite learning centers with collaboration capabilities, BP could train and transfer knowledge easier and more effectively.

Custom Solution Design and Implementation

BP’s vision includes two central Learning Centers, one in Houston and one in the UK, along with several other remote High-Definition Distance Learning environments placed strategically around the world. These high-quality training centers not only have distance learning capabilities that stream classes from one site to another, but also provide specialized technologies that help facilitate the educational experience. Mechdyne worked with BP to design and implement technology that would allow BP’s experienced engineers to transfer their knowledge on to newer colleagues in a high-definition, interactive, and collaborative environment. Mechdyne’s customized solutions provided consistent audiovisual technology building-wide that drastically simplified control for the BP users.

University of Birmingham

Birmingham’s Digital Humanities Hub enriches heritage and cultural education. Stepping beyond just a typical “museum” experience, Birmingham wants their visitors to explore and interact with the artifacts, seeing and experiencing them in brand new ways. Instead of a curator determining the museum experience by selecting certain artifacts, the Hub allows the user’s interests to drive the experience. Without the boundaries of a traditional visit, the university wanted to track what the users were interested in and how they used the technology.

Custom Solution Design and Implementation

Excited to push the boundaries of the typical museum experience, Mechdyne and Birmingham developed a custom solution. Not only would Mechdyne provide interactive display walls, tables, and hand-held devices, the complete solution would support research. By tracking what exhibits the visitors select, how the visitors display the artifacts, and what they focus on, Birmingham understands exactly what the user does and when they do it, allowing them to take museums to a whole new level.
