Abstract:

The purpose of this effort is the development of an Intelligent Tutoring System ITS to teach skills used in electronic troubleshooting and maintenance. This system, the Maintainers Associate Training Instructional Environment MATIE, is based on a previously developed Intelligent Maintainers Associate IMA, a job-aiding expert system for maintenance of the F-111 6883 Avionics Test station. The IMA expert system had been found to be inarticulate and not adaptable for use in an ITS. Thus, a new, simulation-based expert module was developed that allows the student freedom to choose any testpoint. This simulation-based system has the capability to work with any system that can be represented as an acyclic directed graph.
