Ergosign re-conceptualized and re-designed an existing 12” HMI and, to this end, conducted a context analysis and expert reviews. During the conceptualization stage, desktop concepts had to be illustrated on the limited space of a touch panel and HMI standards had to be complied with. The challenge was to make operation efficient and effective so that the machine is not idling at any time.

In a later project phase, the concept had to be re-examined, because it now had to be illustrated on a 7” touch panel. This challenge was overcome by focusing on displaying the most important information and optimizing the interaction concepts for the new screen size.
