Course Outline

This course introduces Human Machine Interface its definition, Operation and application to industrial automation and control systems. It provides learners the tools for creating graphical representation of plant operation.

  • To create simple to complex HMI applications which demonstrates the use of graphic symbols, animation, links, fault and alarm, scripts, and historical trends for monitoring and controlling machine and process automation systems
  • Created application shall be linked to programmable logic controllers (PLC) to show the actual operation of the whole system.
