A Framework for Model-Based Adaptive Training

The ITSIE Specification Methodology

ITSIE is one of the few methodological approaches to a specification for building model-based intelligent training systems in industrial environments [Sime & Leitch 1993]. It was developed within a collaborative project partly funded by the European Commission (ESPRIT project 2615, ITSIE).

MOBIT LogoThe MOBIT project has applied several aspects of the ITSIE methodology with industrial demonstrator experiments. The specification methodology in ITSIE and MOBIT involves mapping of specific training requirements onto tools and techniques for implementation based upon an analysis of the training requirements and of the nature of the domain knowledge.

A task analysis is carried out on the training requirements to determine a number of specific training objectives. These objectives are described in terms of the required level of behaviour and knowledge necessary to achieve the objective.

This description leads to the determination of a primitive mode of instruction, which promotes: rote, inductive or deductive learning modes. This decomposition is used to identify relevant tools and techniques for domain knowledge representations and for didactics and diagnosis within the tutor of the training system. The main elements of the ITSIE methodology are discussed further in the following sections.
