The user panel is the connection between the human and the system
The operator of the machine communicates with his equipment through the user panel. The visible software on the screen enables him to control the system. At the same time the panel informs the operator, how the machine is doing: if something is wrong or, if human interference is needed, how the production flows: how much is done, how much still left to do, and so on.
The role of the user panel is crucial, when the user experience is created. The operator’s knowledge of the machine and the relationship to it relies mainly on the user panel design and usability. This image also has an influence on the image the operator gets from the machine supplier. The image can also be unwanted – a good user panel is not able to improve a bad machine, but a bad user panel is able to deteriorate a good one.
A user facing a problem does not typically bother to seek for a solution in a manual. Too often, the user tries to solve the problem through seeking and failing. Even a good user interphase cannot prevent this from happening. Therefore becoming properly acquainted with instructions cannot be underestimated. Good design – clear and logical user panel – makes easy to understand the system and its control. A training organized by the supplier is essential, especially in case of a large and complicated system.
From a manufacturer’s point of view, it is a necessity, besides the features of the equipment, to create a clear connection between the machine and its operator. At the same time, clear and easy instructions are essential. An investment in these simultaneously is an investment in a positive user experience and improved image of the machine and its capability. When successfully done, it also improves the image of the supplier.
Developing a good user panel is a never-ending task because the overall technological development always means new possibilities to improve the user interface. The day-to-day technology creates new standards and expectations towards a user panel and its logic. I just wonder when it will be possible to control a machine with the power of a thought?Lue lisää
