Situation based instructions UI prototype integrated in DCS

A prototype of the user interface of situation-based instructions was developed and integrated to metsoDNA control system. The goal was to provide an operator with instructions which are focused to the situation and in that way make the decision making process in disturbance situations more simple than with traditional instructions.

The userinterface prototype was built on VTT's toolboxes 7.3. and 7.4. and was integrated to metsoDNA control system. The purpose of the research was to study the utility and the usability of this new tool. Many new possibilities for utilization and hints to improve the usability were found.

Based on this prototype concept Metso Automation aims at developing and integrating new knowledge management products into metsoDNA process control system.

The new products complete the metsoDNA Knowledge Management Activity that now includes e.g. DNAdiary and functional descriptions (loop based guides).
