The training of the personnel plays a major role in the security and reliability of many industrial processes. In order to fulfil this objective it is necessary to develop applications that support distributed interactive simulation with an interface near the real world. This paper describes such type of application during the development of a training simulator prototype for a nuclear power plant. The simulator is based on a client/server architecture that allows the execution on different machines in a network and many users to participate in the same simulation. The interface was designed to support the interaction of the operators with the simulator through touch screens with high fidelity displays of the control room developed using the component technology. The main features of the simulator are the distributed execution of the models using inexpensive hardware and the flexibility of design and maintenance of the interface.
