This paper reports on an experimental study on interface design to measure the mechanism of user experience in large-scale equipment network management system. Based on human factors and cognitive psychology theory, we conducted a comparative research study. Prototypes of the interface were designed based on the two types of information layout which were undergoing 5-point Likert questionnaire method to evaluation the user experience of the users. The main findings of this study were as follows: (1) we found that the interface improvement before (material A) and improved interface (material B) had significant differences on user experience in each level; (2) the improved interface (material B) has a significant better effect on user experience compare to improvement interface before (material A) (P < 0.05). (3) The user background has no significant difference on user experience (P > 0.05). The research results can help us to deeply understand the design of user interface in the complex industrial interface scenarios.
