Use Cases, Requirements and a Prototype Standard for an Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS)/Simulation Interoperability Standard (I/SIS)

By Richard H. Stottler, Robert Richards, Ph. D and Brian Spaulding


ABSTRACT: Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) are being applied to an increasing proportion of military training. Most ITSs are interfaced to simulations, usually involving real-time tactical scenarios. The simulation and ITS are generally developed by different companies at different times. This makes interfacing the ITS and the simulation problematic, experience has shown. An industry-wide interoperability standard would enable different vendors of simulations and ITSs to easily integrate their products, save time and money, and increase the training value of simulation exercises. The Intelligent Tutoring System Interoperability Study Group (ITSI SG) was formed to study the issues associated with an ITS/Simulation Interoperability Standard (I/SIS). This paper describes the results of the ITSI SG meeting held at the Fall, ‘04 SIW in Orlando which resulted in a refined set of use cases and requirements and a prototype of the I/SIS. They are presented here for comment and discussion and follow up on the paper, “Requirements of an Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS)/Simulation Interoperability Standard (I/SIS) ” presented at the Fall, ’04 SIW [1]. Four primary use cases were identified – tactical decision-making training, equipment operations and maintenance training, ITS-centered training systems, and simulation-centered training systems – along with combinations of them. Several requirements were identified and sorted by use case and level. The Study Group decided that it was important to have both a minimal level I/SIS that simulation developers could easily meet (Level 1) and would allow a reasonabl
