When the interfaces between man and machine become increasingly complex and the industrial applications smart and smarter - how do all the networked intelligent information actually lead to the right actions? Clearly a question of usability for the Human Machine Interface (HMI), all developers will probably agree on this.
When is an HMI successful?
The topic of industrial usability has blossomed into the success factor of industrial applications and has thus opened up a completely new, growing field in many directions - for plant and machine builders and developers as well as for commissioning engineers and maintenance teams. Usability aims to make the development and operation of devices more intuitive, easier to learn, and thus more efficient and future-proof. Because here the focus is on people.
But what criteria make an HMI successful? Which methods, key figures and tools lead there - how can I find the right approach for my project? Is AI just selling well as a megatrend, or do developers have to react to AI issues at the user interface? And how can I convince my own management of the usability approach?

Inspiration, best practice and exchange of experience
Industrial Usability Day 2020 is all about these and many other current usability aspects - with concrete examples and experience reports, new findings from research and with many lectures that inspire, polarize, draw from practice or deepen technically. In short: The established conference wants to provide developers (usability engineers, constructors, ergonomists, screen designers, programmers etc.) with ideas, know-how and impulses - and create a lot of space for the exchange with each other.
The program contents are aligned to the different perspectives through an initiative of the four partners Vogel Communications Group, VDMA, Fraunhofer IAO and Cadera Design. “User-oriented usability on machines and systems is a basic requirement for controlling processes effectively, efficiently and safely. User expectations are more important than ever,”explains Thomas Riegler, VDMA Association for Software and Digitization.
