Design of operator interfaces

The design of operator interfaces is important in order for the operation of machinery to be straightforward and user-friendly. An operator interface of unsuitable design can result in elevated mental strain. The design must also take account of the skills of the operating personnel and the purpose for which the machine is to be used. Important standards governing the design of operator interfaces can be found in the EN 894 and EN ISO 9241 series of Standards.
