This paper describes the basis of a specification methodology for building Intelligent Training Systems in Industrial Environments (ESPRIT project 2615, ITSIE). The specification methodology determines the 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. 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. © 1993.
