Don’t ask operators what they want but ask them how they do their job, and what information they use to do that effectively. Ops Factor has developed a design tool to support project managers to conduct a human centred design analysis at the start of a project. This will result not only in a technical but also a functional design as a valuable addition to procurement documents and assessment tool for the detailed engineering phase.
Our ergonomic design analysis is based on an expedition model with clear goals and defined steps, connection technology, organization and people. Our roadmap is a practical translation of the principles and project approach as described in ISO 11064-1.
Our control room design approach follows four basic steps:

Strategic management session
In a dedicated workshop with operator representatives, a task analysis will be conducted, defining information and input requirements per task. Frequency of use, workflow and ergonomic principles will lead to functional design requirements. The sessions can be held on site in pressure cooker format of 1 or 2 days. Or on line in multiple shorter meetings. Both with operator representatives.
Control room design assessment
In a final meeting, several conceptual design options will be presented and reviewed with the complete multi-disciplinary team. The options will be assessed against the functional design requirements as defined in the previous workshops. The outcome will be a supported final functional design.
