Abstract

This paper presents the development of a virtual training workshop (VTW) for supporting training of engineering personnel Tel to acquire the theoretical know-how, practical skills and the problem troubleshooting techniques on the usage of ultra-precision machining and inspection facilities, which might not be affordable in conventional training workshop. The architecture, underlying theoretical basis and implementation aspects for the development of the VTW are described. Experimental work for realizing the capability of VTW together with the future development of a distributed virtual training environment (DVTE) are also discussed.
