In this paper, we describe how we have integrated Steve, an intelligent tutor based on Soar, and HeSPI, a human simulation tool for planning and simulating maintenance tasks in nuclear power plants. The objectives of this integration were to test Steve’s flexibility to be used in different applications and environments and to extend HeSPI to use it as a virtual environment for training. We discuss the problems encountered and the solutions we have designed to solve them.
