Human-machine interfaces: More audience questions are answered below from the webcast, “How to overcome limits of outdated HMI hardware and software.”
When human-machine interface hardware and software are outdated, pain points can be many, including lack of training for less-experienced operators, connectivity and remote access to machine condition or performance information. Get help below and in July 13 webcast.
Upgrading human-machine interface (HMI) or supervisory control and data acquisitions (SCADA) software without upgrading to modern design principles is a lot like putting worn tires on a new car.
If you're thinking of hurrying through the next upgrade of human-machine interface (HMI) or supervisory control and data acquisitions (SCADA) software by keeping all the same screen designs, think again.
A human-machine interface (HMI) establishes a machine builder’s brand, which makes any upgrade require a balance of optimal user experience, hardware options and upstream communication.
When it comes to designing HMIs and other interfaces, cognitive load is an important factor. Three design strategies are highlighted.
When designing a human-machine interface (HMI), it’s important to keep in mind it needs to be designed for the human eye. Four visual hierarchy pillars are highlighted.
With the ISA-101 standard aimed at addressing operator effectiveness, there has been an added focus on bringing practical HMI design concepts to plants. Five improvements are highlighted.
When updating a human-machine interface (HMI) to meet today's plant needs, following the ISA-101 standard is a good place to start.
Maintaining a customer-facing dashboard as an asset can help manufacturers get access to their data more quickly and efficiently. Seven tips are highlighted.
