OGIS Research Institute and Osaka Gas have developed two intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs): PCTS (Process Control Training System) and PDTS (Power Distribution Training System). This paper describes a basic concept of an ITS for plant operation based on the experience of their development. The topics include: (1) The features and structure of PCTS (i.e., text based training and model based training, a simulation model based on OOP, an intelligent authoring system). (2) What kinds of stages are needed for training systems from the view point of cognitive science (i.e., verbal learning multiple discrimination learning, rule learning, compound rule learning problem solving). (3) How to detect trainees' missing operational steps and misoperations using the perturbation method.
