APPLICATION OF A HUMAN FACTOR GUIDELINE TO SUPERVISORY CONTROL INTERFACE IMPROVEMENT

Pere Ponsa, Ramon Vilanova, Marta Díaz, Anton Gomà

Abstract

In tasks of human supervision in industrial control room they are applied generic disciplines as the software engineering for the design of the computing interface and the human factors for the design of the control room layout. From the point of view of the human computer interaction, to these disciplines it is necessary to add the usability engineering and the cognitive ergonomics since they contribute rules for the user centered design. The main goal of this work is the application of a human factors guideline for supervisory control interface design in order to improve the efficiency of the human machine systems in automation. This communication presents the work developed to improve the Sports Service Area interface of the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona.
