InTouch with System Platform 2014

While other HMI providers have been focusing solely on pretty graphics, and adding bells and whistles to their offerings, the experts at Invensys Wonderware have been working in close cooperation with the world's industrial companies, both big and small, to understand their most pressing challenges, and devise the most innovative ways to solve them. One of the dominant needs identified is the ability for operators to more quickly identify and address abnormal situations before they impact operations.

The result is a unique and powerfully simple approach to delivering what you most need in your real-time industrial software systems. With Wonderware InTouch 2014 and Wonderware System Platform 2014, Invensys is introducing a revolutionary new approach to Supervisory Systems and HMI design that focuses on maximizing user performance, not just delivering great graphics. These new capabilities are in areas as diverse as alarm management, color representation, information presentation and window navigation.

Wonderware is again raising the bar for HMI standards with object templates and styles for consistent, standardized colors and fonts in HMI applications, and consistency in the way that alarms are represented throughout systems; all simply managed from a central repository.

By utilizing the results of over 15 years of human interface studies, we are delivering a graphic tool set that transforms the way that industrial user interfaces and HMIs are defined, moving from presenting data, to the next evolution of displaying information in context. Instead of merely developing a library of “graphics”, these new capabilities enable application builders to focus on creating content; easily assembling the most effective HMI applications and user interfaces for operational excellence and abnormal situation management.

With InTouch and System Platform 2014, Wonderware is the only industrial software company providing out of the box solutions that go beyond great graphics to deliver solutions to the core operational performance challenges and opportunities in your organization.
