Industrial training needs to be improved as employees are faced with a rapid change in their knowledge environment and their responsibilities. Instructional design was often considered as a keypoint of knowledge transfer but the outcomes in terms of cost and efficiency depend greatly on how the design is realized and how the employees can efficiently use the learning material. In the SAFARI project, which aims at developing various components of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS), cooperation with industry led us to deliver gradual tutoring systems that correspond to different real needs. Lessons learned from this experience highlight some realistic aspects of training in industry and allow to consider instructional design according to a new point of view.
