Human-machine Interface Design for Process Control Applications

Front Cover
Users and designers of industrial control and monitoring systems (e.g., distributed control, supervisory control and data acquisition, and stand-alone) will benefit from this book's easy-to-useƂ--yet effectiveƂ--method on how to configure, design, and validate human-machine interfaces (HMIs). It discusses the overall HMI design process and how that process relates to system design. It also details design methods, principles and rules for individuals or groups of displays, as well as the integration of software-based and hardwired HMIs. This book will help guide you on the design of HMIs for other, less common, yet important, components, such as expert systems and other electronically-displayed operating procedures. Using the knowledge contained in this book, you can determine how to configure or design a whole new set of displays for a system or how to enhance specific elements of an existing or planned HMI.
