Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

A simulation server comprising:

a communication interface;

memory for storing at least one lesson plan, the lesson plan comprising at least one event, the at least one event comprising at least one rule to be monitored during execution by the simulation server of the at least one lesson plan;

a processing unit for:

executing a simulation according to one of the lesson plans;

transmitting a visual representation of the execution of the simulation to a computing device via the communication interface;

collecting simulation data representative of the execution of the simulation;

processing the simulation data;

comparing the simulation data with the at least one rule of the at least one event of the lesson plan;

determining if the at least one rule is met based on a result of the comparison; and

when one of the rules is not met, transmitting information for displaying on a timeline in the visual representation of the execution of the simulation a visual alarm representative of the event corresponding to the rule not being met to the computing device via the communication interface.

The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein each rule comprises at least one of the following: an action, a measurement, and a combination thereof.

3. The simulation server of claim 2, wherein the value of an action consists in a determination that the action has been taken or not during execution of the simulation in accordance to the lesson plan.

4. The simulation server of claim 3, wherein one of the rules consists in the action being taken.

5. The simulation server of claim 2, wherein a measurement comprises one of the following: a measurement of a simulation parameter, a measurement of a time to perform an action, and a measurement of a delay between two consecutive actions.

6. The simulation server of claim 5, wherein one of the rules consists in a specific value or a specific range of values for the measurement.

7. The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein the visual representation of the execution of the simulation consists in one of the following: a 2D image, a 3D image, and a curve.

8. The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein the visual representation of the execution of the simulation consists in one of the following: a 2D map with a representation of a simulated aircraft along the timeline, a 3D map with a representation of a simulated aircraft along the timeline, and a curve representing an altitude of a simulated aircraft along the timeline.

9. The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein transmitting information for displaying the visual alarm in the visual representation of the execution of the simulation consists in directly integrating the visual alarm in the visual representation of the execution of the simulation.

10. The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein the visual alarm corresponding to a particular type of event comprises at least one of the following: a

particular geometric shape, and a particular color.

1 1. The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein during the execution of the simulation in accordance with the lesson plan, the processing unit:

determines a plurality of simulation values of the at least one rule of the event based on the processing of the simulation data; and

compares each of the plurality of simulation values of the at least one rule of the event with a Key Performance Indicator.

12. The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein the memory stores a lesson plan comprising at least one event and at least one objective corresponding to the event.

13. The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein the computing device is a portable computing device.

14. The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein the computing device is a simulator.

15. The simulation server of claim 1 , wherein the simulation consists in a simulation of an aircraft.
