Clear and rapid presentation key for leading operator interface trends

April 29, 2016
To help keep up with the newest trends, we've compiled this special report highlighting the past year’s operator interface developments.

Today’s leading trends in operator interface, human-machine interface (HMI) design and engineering center around presenting more information, presenting the right information at the right time and presenting it clearly and rapidly.

These trends are supported by emerging improvements and standards for SCADA, enterprise integration, mobility, alarm management and high-performance HMI (including human-factors engineering to enhance operator effectiveness, efficiency and situational awareness).

To help keep up with the newest trends, we've compiled this special report of recent coverage in Control magazine and on ControlGlobal.com that highlights the past year’s operator interface developments. It also includes examples of recent outstanding implementations in the process industries.

Some specific topics covered include the following:

    • How better designed systems help operators respond to abnormal situations;  
    • what you need to look for in operator displays;
    • the real cost of poorly performing HMI systems;
    • how to create a lasting plan for managing alarms and more.
