    Although high-performance graphics (HPG) have been around for quite some time, a lot more goes into creating an optimal HMI than you might think. Without the proper graphics layout and design, process issues become hidden from view and lead to process incidents and poor operation. In this webinar, we’ll examine how effective graphics development results in an HMI that makes it possible for operators to proactively identify problems and respond quickly.

    Topics include:

    • Establishing an effective development process for HPG development
    • Getting operations buy-in for HPG
    • Optimizing the layout to reduce the number of graphics needed
    • Determining the proper skills needed to perform the work
    • Identifying whether to use standard libraries or custom libraries
