It was necessary to make a multi-functional and public system that allows you to explore the space of an apartment building online, find and solve problems at home
the execution period of the project is – 120 days
the number of staff members involved in the project – 12 people
the platform – Django
the programming language – Python
- 3D models of apartment buildings used in the simulator are made according to the drawings of the most popular series of residential buildings in Russia. We needed to develop a virtual simulator that would completely replace the practical experience in a specific home. Analyzing the technical condition of an apartment building a specialist can examine the structural elements of the house or go to the nearby area. We have integrated pop - up information windows and help in text, audio and video formats into the system with the help of which you can learn about the characteristics and problems of the house.
- The ability to monitor ongoing changes in the technical condition of a virtual apartment building after the user has eliminated the identified defects and violations is added. Each user's action is taken into account when completing the task , points are awarded according to the correctness and timeliness of performed actions.
- In the "Testing" mode, participants are offered three levels of difficulty, one hundred questions each. Total, we have provided more than a thousand questions that test your knowledge of apartment building management. The educational platform includes an independent system for determining the user's level of knowledge and ranking specialists basing on the obtained rating. In order for a potential employer to see the strengths of each of the participants we have divided the player rating on testing, the player rating by tournament and the overall rating.
«ZHEKA-PROFI» is the world's first simulator for specialists in the housing and utilities sector, there are no analogues in Russia or abroad. The project is based on Russian realities yet can be easily applied abroad. We presented the simulator at the international championship of professional skills WorldSkills Russia in Kazan for the first time. The launch was attended by Konstantin Tsitsin, General Director of the state PublicUtilities fund, the administration of the WorldSkills Russia Union and the winners of regional professional skill championships. In fact, we have created a unique platform for training employees in the sphere of public utilities which has already been tested by thousands of students and graduates. Now this educational system is widely used in educational programs for training and advanced training of specialists for the utility complex throughout the country.
