New Guidelines for Optimizing HMI Usability and Performance Published by ISA

Human-machine interfaces (HMIs), the primary means by which users interact with industrial processes, provide the potential and opportunity to greatly enhance operations - or to confuse users and degrade operations.

The International Society of Automation's first American National Standard on HMI, ANSI/ISA-101.01-2015, Human Machine Interfaces for Process Automation Systems, covers the philosophy, design, implementation, operation, and maintenance of HMIs for process automation systems. It defines the terminology and models to develop an HMI and the work processes recommended to effectively maintain an HMI throughout its full lifecycle.
