Control room operators are not static robots. They are human beings who thrive on variety, stimulation, activity and choice. Each individual has different dimensions and can have a different cone of fixations, line of sight, near-point, field of vision and postural preferences within a given task zone.
Control room operator actions have a direct impact on uptime, production output, quality and safety. However, operators are often hindered by a lack of attention to human factors. This hinders their ability to ‘stay-on-top’ of the situation.
ABB control room furniture, equipment and layout solutions improve operators’ working conditions by providing a complete micro-environment that adapts to each individual’s needs. This attractive ergonomic environment helps operators do a better, more effective job, thereby enhance plant availability, profitability and safety.
