A Framework for Model-Based Adaptive Training

Model-based - Conclusion

The generator plant model design, trip logic circuit specification and a simulation tool have been developed by different members of the MOBIT project. Extensive training scenarios for the plant load change problem space have been implemented by MOBIT project members at Heriot-Watt University.

The analysis and implementation of the circuit board training units reported in this chapter has been carried out by the author. The prototype software for these training units is implemented with a user interface created with the C programming language and Microsoft Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) software.

The training unit software and domain models are implemented using the RuleWorks V1.0 language (with SOAR-like extensions for this research). The training system is partially implemented to specify the roles of domain experts and a generic trainer (i.e., into their separate software components within the training system architecture) and to demonstrate the way training units can be designed.

An example screen is shown in Figure 4-2 – Power Plant Presentation Training Unit. Preliminary analysis of the framework and screens of the user interface implementation of training units as reported in this chapter can be found in MOBIT workshop proceedings [MOBIT 1994, W5-W6].

The results of Proto-MOBAT have validated the overall training framework in its essentials (see Figure 4-1). There are several parts that are not completely covered yet.

For example, the framework requires validation against industrial training domains, tight integration of distinct levels of reasoning at the domain level, the use of a set of domain modelling dimensions and the specification of a trainee profile.

The completion of the framework is attended to in the following chapters.
