Thanks, Jack and Michael. That was the idea behind designing it.  Most of the folks we train are kinesthetic learners, they see a problem and go hands-on to fix the problem.  Pressure diagnostics is a little different, it requires folks to build a mental framework of a particular building's interactive pressures, determine the issues and solutions, fix it, then confirm it was corrected properly.  Not an easy task when much of the reconstruction work happens in your head.  We expect this pressure diagnostics simulator will provide the intuitive mental exercises needed to make for effective auditors and technicians in the field.
