Key components of future simulation and learning environments are described. These components are needed for signicantly enhancing the rapid creation of innovative affordable hight-tech products. The simulation environment will link scientists, design teams, manufacturers, suppliers and consultants who participate in the creation and operation of high-tech products. It will use a synergistic combination of intelligent tools and facilities, advanced human-computer interfaces and non-classical methods, including multi-scale, highly coupled multi-physics and non-deterministic approaches. The three categories of learning environments required to meet the long-life learning demands of the future are described. These are expert-led group learning, self-paced individual learning, and collaborative learning. The three environments, in combination, can reduce the time and cost of learning, and sustain and increase worker competencies in high-tech organizations.
