Keep it simple. It’s a business maxim that everyone can easily agree with, but taking it to heart is another matter altogether. Consider the control system for instance. Control system design can quickly become complex and over-complicated with all the equipment and demands of the modern workplace. That’s why engineers need to think about a single-interface control system design and again to reiterate—really keep it simple.
Begin with the end-user in mind. These days, UX needs to be baked into everything we do. Control system interface design is no exception. The planning, the iterations, the work engineers put in to creating the solutions may not be simple. But the outcome – the control system interface design – should be intuitive, so it easily becomes part of day-to-day workflow.
