Modern monitoring and supervisory control systems employ keyboard entry devices and cathode-ray tube (CRT) terminals as the primary control and display elements. The multi-function nature of the CRT can be used to centralize system operation but its combination with keyboard entry devices defies a high level of display/ control integration. This paper was suggested by recent improvements in display and control technologies which can provide physical and functional display integration to a degree not permitted by present display and control techniques at costs allowing wide application to both commercial and military systems.
