Ideal for users and designers of industrial control and monitoring systems, this book provides an easy-to-use, yet effective, method to configure, design, and validate human-machine interfaces (HMIs). Such systems include distributed control systems (DCSs); supervisory control and data acquisition systems (SCADAs); and stand-alone units.This book also discusses the overall HMI design process; how that process relates to system design; detailed design methods, principles, and rules for individual displays and groups of displays; and integrating both software-based and hardwired HMIs.The primary audience intended for this book is designers and developers of HMIs; however, it will also assist project leaders and managers, engineers, and system integrators in ensuring that the systems they design will work synergistically with operators, thus leading to improved safety and productivity.The book was also written with operators in mind. Having been in field service for a number of years, the author recognizes that operators and their supervisors optimize processes on a day-to-day basis. It is hoped this book will help them better understand how to enhance and optimize existing HMIs, and to express their operational requirements in a way that can be more easily understood by HMI designers.
