Graphic Design for HMIs
Air Date: Tuesday, May 22, 2012
The graphic capabilities of today's HMIs are virtually limitless, allowing designers to create a look in any way they see fit. But how much of this actually helps operators? Studies show that human beings are still a critical element in dealing with problems, so does your HMI support good decision making?
A case study from the University of Oregon Central Power Station Upgrade will be presented, with an emphasis on the importance of design standardization across the project. We will discuss the common impediments and constraints encountered in design, the appropriate balance of information in HMI design, the various design constraints (hardware/software/users), and how P&ID is converted to, and reflected in HMI design.
Join us for an examination of how operators and control systems relate, and how you can improve human performance.
