A Framework for Model-Based Adaptive Training

Methodology Review - Conclusion

The MOBAT framework is aimed at characterising the required elements from industrial training domains (i.e., appropriate domains for a model-based training approach) and to define the right granularity of training tasks to promote reusable domain and trainer structures within the training system architecture (see Figure 1-1).

There are many questions to be investigated in this research. To build on the ITSIE methodology (see Figure 3-1) and expand the initial MOBIT methodology (see Figure 1-2), a set of questions for the MOBAT framework have been formulated which are shown below in Figure 3-3.

The MOBAT framework to address these questions is defined in the following chapters. The initial MOBAT framework is presented in chapter 4. This framework is verified and expanded with analysis, design and implementation experiments in chapter 5 and 6 using two application domains. These application experiments have been identified as:

  • representative industrial training tasks,
  • differing in character to design generality in the MOBAT methodology; and,
  • complementing the MOBIT project demonstrator work.

The initial framework is extended within an order scheduling domain in chapter 5 (called Scheduling-MOBAT) and a manufacturing workmanship training domain in chapter 6 (called Workmanship-MOBAT). Both training experiments utilise domain expert agents and a generic trainer agent based on the training system architecture shown in Figure 1-1.

The resulting MOBAT specification and realisation framework is completed with a trainee profile specification and summarised in chapter 7.
