In the project engineers' initial comprehension and modelling of problems is investigated and their use of theoretical and practical knowledge is identified. The idea is to simulate practical open ended problem situations and present them on a CD-rom. A first version dealing with an industrial production plant is under construction. Under controlled conditions, engineers with different theoretical and practical backgrounds are exposed to the presentation and asked first to identify and describe relevant problems and then to propose methods for solving the problems.
