Drs. Dirk Beer and Harvey Smallman's display color study mentioned in Chemical Processing

Date: 
April 2015

Dr. Dirk Beer and Dr. Harvey Smallman of Pacific Science & Engineering are undertaking the first comprehensive, controlled study of display color in process industries for the Center for Operator Performance. The Center for Operator Performance is a collaboration of operating companies and DCS suppliers that researches operator performance issues. A set of experiments will be designed and conducted and the results used to make evidence-based recommendations for background and palette colors over a wide range of process control displays and viewing conditions. Software tools will then help designers develop more effective HMI displays utilizing optimal background colors based on current viewing conditions, and will allow designers or engineers to validate new colors by checking for good visibility and discriminability of the color.
