While there are numerous types of electronic learning environments including collaboratories, construction toolkits, systems with " scaffolding " and simulations, it is difficult to find authoring tools to build these systems. We have developed an application framework for constructing simulation-based learning environments called SimPLE (Simulated(More)
Reviewing past events has been useful in many domains. Videotapes and flight data recorders provide invaluable technological help to sports coaches or aviation engineers. Similarly, providing learners with a readable recording of their actions may help them monitor their behavior, reflect on their progress, and experiment with revisions of their(More)
We have developed physically-based dynamic simulators relevant to semiconductor manufacturing processes, which realistically reflect the time-dependent behavior of equipment, process, sensor, and control systems using commercial simulation software (VisSim TM) under Windows. Following on their successful research use for engineering design, we are applying(More)
We have developed an application framework for constructing simulation-based learning environments using dynamic simulations and visualizations to represent realistic time-dependent behavior. The development environment is described and many examples are given. In particular we will focus on the learning historian which provides users and learners with a(More)
Dynamics plays a critical role in the behavior and performance of semiconductor manufacturing from the unit process level to full factory operations, yet major gaps exist in our ability to simulate the consequences of this dynamics. At the process level, process models can provide a reasonable description of steady-state process behavior, but the realities(More)
