The High Performance HMI Handbook

Effectively Monitor Plant Operations and Address Abnormal Situations

The High Performance HMI Handbook from Hexagon is the first and only comprehensive book to detail the need, the design, and the implementation of an optimal Human-Machine Interface (HMI) for process operators and the automation systems used to control complex process operations.

Poorly designed HMIs are common and have often been cited as contributing factors to abnormal plant situations. The High Performance HMI Handbook aims to mitigate these risks by providing the tools for assessment, justification and planning of a high performance HMI solution. 

Be sure to download our two-part white paper series, a supplement to The High Performance HMI Handbook, that provides dozens of additional figures, element examples, case studies, and standards reviews:

“The control room HMI is a core element of an effective plant operations situational awareness strategy and key to safety and reliability,” according to Kevyn Renner, Senior Technology Consultant, Control & Information Systems, at Chevron Global Manufacturing. “The processing industries have been in need of a comprehensive body of knowledge that provides best practices for effective operator HMIs since the advent of Distributed Control Systems in the mid-1970s, and this handbook now fills the gap.”
