ASM Consortium Guidelines: Effective Operator Interface Design
By ASM Joint R&D Consortium
Reviewed by Nick Sands

One of the first organizations to address the design of control system displays was the Abnormal Situation Management Consortium (ASM). The group formed between 1992-1994, evolving from a task group of Honeywell users concerned about alarm system performance to an organization that includes user companies, technology companies and universities that also addresses other issues of user-control system interaction. ASM members developed the guidelines on Effective Operator Interface Design, but until recently the document was available only to member companies. It provides a list of 81 guidelines, grouped into 16 categories, and prioritized for relative importance.

Several categories target the organization of displays including; display types, display content, display style, display layout, and navigation. One of the important concepts is a well structured display hierarchy that provides levels of information from overview to detail. They recommend displays be designed and organized to support operator tasks. A guideline on animation and detailed drawings states they should be used by rarely, except in the case of alarm indications. A consistent layout suggested, like process flows moving left to right, increases clarity and the navigation from one display to another should be simple and clear to the operator.

The use of color, symbols and process connections, text and numbers, and the interactions with displays are categories related to display design. The guidance is to use a minimum of colors, less than seven, and use them consistently, with bright colors used only for alarms.

The book looks more like a spec not exactly as text book. Despite this I found about 15% of the content completely new for me and VERY useful. For a professional in the field of SCADA automation, this book is worth the money spent. Do not hesitate to buy it if you do SCADA for living.

I purchased this book hoping for some insights in to SCADA screen design. The book is ok but not great. It lays out in a guideline format some recommendations and strategies, it seems to be a little dated, and is not remotely interesting to read. There is some value in it however and some good suggestions. I was able to utilize some of the recommendations and use the book as a reference to help persuade management to make changes in my organization. I found "The High Performance HMI Handbook" to be a much better book for my purpose.
