The Control Room activities consist of applying Human Factors Engineering (HFE) criteria to industrial facilities (and especially power stations) in order to guarantee a unified Man-Machine Interface (MMI) that reduces human error and allows the installation to be operated safely and efficiently.
This includes the design and development of new control rooms and also the modernisation of operating facilities in keeping with the technological state of the art.
In this respect Tecnatom has available experts and contrasted methodologies in the following areas of activity:
- Human Factors Engineering (HFE) for the Design of New Control Rooms.
- Human Factors Engineering (HFE) for the Modernisation of Control Rooms.
- Instrumentation and Control Systems.
- Plant processes and operation.
This allows for the creation of multidisciplinary teams covering the profiles required to guarantee an optimum supply.
Tecnatom possesses its own in-house methodology and technology including all the phases of a development of this type:
Analysis of man-machine interface (MMI) requirements
Functional analysis of the system
Assignment of man-machine functions
Verification of Man-Machine Interface (operability and maintainability)
Integrated Validation of Man-Machine Interface
Design of implementation strategy (migration in the case of modernisation)
Human Performance Monitoring
