Abstract : This report describes a general approach to implementing troubleshooting tutors for complex hydraulic-electronic-mechanical systems in wide use throughout industry and the military. With this approach, user interfaces are rapidly constructed from scanned-in schematics, and animation is easily added with hypermedia tools to show the internal operation of the device. Object classes and methods are used to describe device structure and to implement the functionality of both device components and tutor components. The object-oriented approach facilitates reuse of these components and their portability across platforms, programming languages, and domains. It also supports the ability to generate instructional interactions, such as explanations, directly from device and component descriptions.
