Control Room Information for Batch Processes
The way information is displayed in control rooms in the process industry has developed a long way from the original gauges, chart recorders and lamps to the sophisticated windows based Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) of today. But does the increased ability to acquire and to display more data mean that better information is conveyed than before? This paper describes how the technology available recently has not been used to its full potential in control rooms. A methodology is then developed to make use of the available technology in order to assist in the delivery of information to control room operators. In particular the paper addresses the problems in the presentation of plant data in the context of batch processes.
