Design Like a Pro: Exceptional Industry-Specific HMIs

When it comes to designing an HMI, there are a few basic concepts to keep in mind, but no one-size-fits-all solution. Every screen will be unique, with functionality and requirements particular to the needs of its operators, and the more specialized the use, the more critical those differences are. So what makes an HMI excel in an industry setting?

Breakthrough Batch Manufacturing Solutions

Batch manufacturing has not seen major innovation for decades – until now. Creating batch solutions that include process graphics, communications to business systems, traceability, e-signatures, and WIP inventory historically required purchasing and interfacing together several separate software packages, resulting in inconsistent production quality, difficulty making recipe/batch changes, and struggles to comply with regulatory requirements. Finding the right tools to conquer these challenges is key to unleashing your production’s full potential.

Design Like a Pro: Mobile-Responsive HMIs for Any Screen

Mobile apps have become exponentially more important as smart phones and tablets continue to advance and become the dominant computing devices around the world. This means creating an app that is easy to navigate, visually appealing, and functionally consistent is more necessary than ever before. However, there is no user manual to tell you what to include in your mobile app or what structure is best for your purposes.
