Abstract: Dynamic process simulators are increasingly being used in industry to support employee education and training. For nearly as many years as the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has existed, researchers in AI and Education have been investigating designs for computer-based tutoring and training systems, with the aim of developing instructional systems comparable in their effectiveness to expert human instructors. Only in the last few years, however, have simulator-based training system designs begun to be seriously explored. This article describes a research project focusing on the design of simulator-based tools to assist the training of process-control operators in the paper industry. In particular, we discuss the design of tools that operators could use to improve their skills in diagnosis and repair tasks.
