Invited Speaker Announced: John Krajewski on the Situational Awareness – The Next Leap in Industrial Human Machine Interface Design

John Krajewski, WWAC2015 Invited Speaker

The symposium committee is pleased to announce that John Krajewski from Schneider Electric will be an invited speaker for the 2015 ISA Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls Symposium. John will be presenting on the Situational Awareness – The Next Leap in Industrial Human Machine Interface Design.

John will discuss how the Human Machine Interface (HMI) should be designed to optimize the operator’s interpretation of the vast amount of data being displayed. The cornerstone of improving the overall HMI design is to deliver Situational Awareness (SA). Only by achieving the proper Situational Awareness can the operations team make effective decisions that will deliver overall business success.

As industrial processes evolve, so will the design of the HMIs that are used to operate those processes. Instead of asking the operators to focus on a large volume of process parameters, the data will be placed into context to deliver situational awareness. Instead of having the operations staff being viewed as labor resources they will be empowered as information craftsmen that will make key business decisions in real time. Instead of operating in a reactive mode the systems will be proactively managed to extract the maximum business value from those systems. Ultimately the focus of the operations teams will shift from merely operating the process to real time business management.
