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

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-1970’s, and this handbook now fills the gap.
