The alarm system and Human Machine Interface (HMI) are the main interfaces for process plant operators to monitor and control the process. This webinar will discuss HMI Design practices that can help improve the operator’s response to abnormal situations based on human factors considerations. It will discuss techniques for optimizing situation awareness before, during, and after an upset. It includes best practices in the configuration of process graphics and the alarm system taken from the ISA-18.2 and ISA-101 standards. It also references the work of Micah Endsley, the ASM Consortium, and the Center for Operator Performance.
