What Makes Wonderware Situational Awareness Different?
Although all approaches to Situational Awareness seek to improve the User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX), the underlying practices, standards, design tools, and methodologies can vary considerably.
The Wonderware Situational Awareness Symbol Library goes beyond simple graphics and provides highly valuable and re-usable design elements that simplify HMI design and maintenance saving time, effort and cost.
Modern industrial systems continue to grow in complexity and geographically at an ever accelerating pace. This growth introduces new challenges including: vastly increased volumes of data, increased Operator training requirements and staffing issues, as well as having to meet the needs of a highly mobile workforce. Such changes require a whole new approach to industrial process visualization. It requires a more systematic approach to delivering situational awareness, involving intuitive and easy to use UI design tools and pre-configured symbols.
Designs are based on principles proven to translate highly dynamic process data into actionable information and effective decision making.
With the Wonderware Situational Awareness Symbols Library, application developers can create highly intuitive visual content and custom applications for any given event. Dozens of ‘Wizards’ guide context driven access to millions of ‘out-of-the-box’ pre-configured symbols. Developers drag and drop these into various scenarios, saving up to 70% in design time.
