Project: CRD 00 — Human-Computer Interface Design for Petrochemical Process Control--Integrating Task- and System-based Approaches II: Interface Design and Evaluation

Partner: Nova Chemicals, Honeywell Technology Center, NSERC
Dates: January 1998 - June 2001
Participants: Jamieson, G., Vicente, K. J.
Description: In Phase 2 of the project [HTC 97], we mapped the integrated information requirements into a pair of ecological interfaces. One interface (P+F) contained information exclusively from the system-based model while the other interface (P+F+T) contained information from both system- and task-based models. An iterative design approach was used in which process engineers and operators critiqued early designs. The final designs were implemented in software, connected to a full-scope industry simulator, and validated. An empirical evaluation compared operator performance on the two ecological interfaces and the contemporary interface.
