At the department “Development and Supply of nautical simulators” simulator systems are designed to meet the requirements of ship's officers, pilots, ship engineers and nautical students. Currently four simulators have been designed; the manoeuvring simulator, the engineroom simulator, the cargo handling simulator and the Part Task simulator. The Part Task simulator is a three-in-one simulator. It consists of the Manoeuvring, the Engineroom, and the Cargohandling simulator. The Part Task simulator is written in Ada83 and C++. This paper describes the experiences of converting the Part Task Simulator Ada83 code to Ada95 code.
