Accelerating the Adoption of Industrial Internet of Things.


For operators, the Human-Machine Interface (HMI) provides a virtual window into the manufacturing process. The HMI should help operators keep their facilities running safely, securely, and efficiently, but HMI screens that convey too much information with too little context make it difficult for them to do their jobs. 

To help you design HMI screens that are optimized to improve performance, we have assembled several design tips. This white paper covers some of the most powerful design principles you can use to optimize your HMI projects: analog displays, trends, emphasis, and navigation. 

You will learn about: 

•  Putting data into a practical context with analog displays 

•  Using embedded trends to anticipate potential problems 

•  Emphasis techniques to help an operator quickly assess the process 

•  Setting up your navigation to create a data hierarchy in the HMI
