ReferenceMigration of an existing control systemA customer from the waste disposal sector was planning to migrate his existing control system and was looking for a reliable specialist for this. His choice fell on the experts from the Alarm IT Factory.The order includes the relocation of the WinCC project to a new installation with the current operating system. This is followed by the connection and visualization of a new system, the connection of mobile devices and the integration of further systems on the factory premises. In connection with this, WinCC is to be expanded as a central switching and monitoring system.In the past, mechanical controls and switches were not only used to display the settings, they were also the switching instrument itself. Today displays are used for visualization, thereby creating a higher level of abstraction. In addition, automated processes are becoming increasingly complex. A clearly arranged graphical user interface on the monitor is all the more important. An intuitive screen design makes it easier for new employees to get started and shortens the learning process for the management system.TechnologyWinCC control systemMobile devices via WebUXConnection to weather stationConnection of surveillance cameraThe expansion and optimization of a switching and monitoring system requires a deep understanding of the operational processes. The supreme discipline, however, is to make the user interface easy to interpret for the employees - for clear perception and quick intervention options. To do this, we try to understand the work steps that the employee has to perform in front of the monitor.In connection with this, we question established courses of action. Ideally, shortcuts for the operation can be implemented.
