This paper describes an educational multimedia network developed in Advanced Software for Training and Evaluation of Processes (ASTEP). ASTEP started in February 1998 and was set up by a mixed industry-academia consortium with the objective of meeting the educational/training demands of the highly competitive microelectronics/semiconductor industry. The ASTEP consortium is led by the Heriot-Watt University in the United Kingdom and brings together universities and companies from five European countries that include the United Kingdom, Portugal, France, Norway, and Germany. The industry part of this consortium is related to semiconductor fabrication and microsystems manufacturing and includes Motorola (the factories in East Kilbride, UK and Toulouse, France), Applied Materials GmbH (Germany) and SensoNor (Norway).
