HMI & Dashboard Design

BONNER supply user-friendly interfaces that enhance productivity

HMI & Dashboard Design

We specialise in creating intuitive Human-Machine Interface (HMI) solutions and interactive dashboards tailored to your specific needs.

Our team of experts combines creativity and technical expertise to deliver user-friendly interfaces that enhance productivity, improve decision-making, and drive operational efficiency.

With ease of use mind all the way from storyboarding to application on a day-to-day basis, we make sure that all operators will be comfortable with the design, familiar with the navigation and indicators and understand all processes.

We carefully consider all elements of daily use and make sure dashboards are consistent and effective so that all users can be easily trained in its use.

There are also several elements including safety, reliability and efficiency to consider both in the context of the dashboards and the equipment being controlled or monitored.

Key Benefits

  • Enhanced User Experience: Our HMI designs prioritise user experience, making it easy for operators to interact with machines and access critical information quickly and intuitively.
  • Improved Data Visualisation: Transform complex data into clear and actionable insights through visually appealing dashboards that provide real-time updates and analysis.
  • Increased Efficiency: Streamline workflows and optimise processes by presenting relevant information in a structured and easily accessible format, reducing manual errors and downtime.
  • Tailored to Operators: We work closely with machine operators to understand the specific needs of the facility and make suggestions based on our experiences with final dashboard design.
  • Safe and Secure: We carefully consider how to utilise passwords and screen protection whilst still making dashboards and systems functional and accessible to all operators.

Customised Interface Design

Tailor-made HMI solutions designed to meet your specific requirements and workflow preferences, ensuring optimal usability and efficiency. This extends from navigation buttons to error messages; what sits on the main screen to individual status screens. The look and feel will be easy to use and remove any unnecessary buttons or features.

Initial storyboards lay out how the final dashboard will function with input from both operators and BONNER experts. The purpose is to make sure design, navigation, display, functions and indicators are all in line with expectations.

Interactive Dashboards

Create interactive dashboards that allow users to visualise data, explore trends, and drill down into details for deeper analysis and decision-making. By only keeping necessary tasks, buttons and touchpoints on each dashboard the interactivity and productivity will be improved. Each tailored dashboard has workflow in mind with maximum output from all interactions.

By taking the time to understand the tasks associated with the dashboards we can make suggestions on how to best use it on a daily basis and how each workforce can interact for an optimised experience.

By using prototypes and testing early on in the design process it is possible to test missed opportunities, establish efficient ways of working and filter out unnecessary processes.

Integration Capabilities

Seamlessly integrate HMI and dashboard designs with existing systems and databases, enabling real-time data exchange and synchronisation for accurate and up-to-date information. Screens can include alarms and event logging that can feed into other operations within your facility, where applicable.

The benefits of integration include increased efficiency, additional safety, space saving, cost saving and improved troubleshooting.

Ultimately the purpose of the software is to allow human and machine integration on a daily basis, so by following a detailed process throughout the planning journey, the combination of actions by operators and machinery will be seamless.
