User Experience & Usability: The Human Factor in the Digital FactoryDiscovery Stage
More and more data, highly flexible processes and new interaction models: What tasks do people face in the smart and digitized factory? Or, to put it another way: Which tasks are left for humans? And who sets the tone – man or machine? Systems that become ever more complex must be easy to operate if they are to be used to their full potential. How can this be achieved? The answer: By always keeping human needs in mind. The classic worker is long gone. It is replaced by the operator, who is required to have a much more comprehensive view of manufacturing processes. User experience and HMI design are part of the solution. attoma provides an insight into the basics of their design approach and shows practical examples of how challenges can be met with intelligent and user-friendly interfaces.
