This paper proposes to apply modeling techniques as support for creating serious games for project management training in EPCC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction & Commissioning); in this area it is critical to be able to coordinate team work and to distribute results in a wide community (engineers, planners, managers etc.) by applying proper methodologies and techniques. The authors present this innovative serious games based on simulation that allows to set up a role play games among the different teams (engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning) working for achieving common and individual goals. The proposed simulator support the distributed use of the project management techniques directly by trainees (decision makers and engineers), applied to a power plant EPC Project.
