Abstract

In tasks of human supervision in industrial control room they are applied generic disciplines as the software engineering and the physical ergonomics for the design of the computing interface and the design of the control room layout. From the point of view of the human computer interaction, to these disciplines it is necessary to add the usability engineering and the cognitive ergonomics since they contribute rules for the user centered design. The main goal of this work is the creation of a cognitive ergonomic guideline for supervisory control interface design in order to improve the efficiency of the human machine systems in industrial automation.
