Die Motivation

  • Training is costly and time-consuming
  • Machine operators with prior training are almost impossible to find
  • Operation is often non-intuitive and differs widely from machine to machine > risk fo wrong machine handling
  • Machine operation continues to grow in complexity
  • In many cases operators work on multiple machines, sometimes during the same day
  • HMI design is driven by OEMs
  • There is no coordination or synchronization between manufacturers
  • Different machines have different requirements
  • HMI architectures and logics are highly complex and varied, even within the same machine category
  • All this means high learning and operating effort for machine users

Our aim:

Development of an unified OPERATOR pro, a standard interface for construction and working machines
