HMI designing refers to the process of creating and designing the graphical user interface (GUI) of an HMI system. It involves making the layout, graphics, and controls that operators will use to interact with the machine or process. This process typically includes the following steps:
- Defining the requirements: This step involves identifying the operator’s specific needs and the process, such as the type of information that needs to be displayed and the type of controls that need to be provided.
- Creating the layout: This step involves developing a layout for the HMI interface, including the placement of buttons, sliders, and other controls, as well as the overall design of the interface.
- Designing the graphics: This step involves creating the graphics used in the interface, such as icons and images.
- Programming the controls: This step involves programming the functionality of the controls, such as button presses and sliders, to interact with the machine or process.
- Testing and validation: This step involves testing the HMI interface to ensure it works correctly and meets the requirements in step one.
HMI designing is a critical part of the automation process as it ensures that the operator can easily interact with the machine or process, understand the status of the process, and take appropriate action when needed. A well-designed HMI can improve the efficiency, productivity, and safety of the process; it also can help to reduce human errors.
