It's about situation awareness. Humans need analog displays so they can see trends. They need a good HMI, they need alarm management practices that include hardware, software and people. You need new practices for communications, shift handover, training and operator workload assessment. You need human reliability and hierarchical task analysis. You need to re-do work team design, including the number of supervisors. In the future, the control valve will eventually become a complete solution, with intelligence at the valve. Field operators will have an HMI to the controls Control will move to the field. The control room will still have a place: Situation Awareness Room.
