Scenario-based training (SBT) is an instructional approach ideally suited to take advantage of the characteristics of simulation. However, it is often difficult for instructors to create scenarios for computer-based simulation; this problem has prompted researchers to begin exploring automated scenario-generation techniques. Yet, for software to automatically generate an efficacious training scenario, it must “understand” the components, and the relationships among components, that comprise effective scenarios. This chapter discusses an approach to operationalizing scenario pieces so that automatic generation software can assemble complete training scenarios from these component parts.
