Abstract

This paper presents the potential contribution of new hypermedia technologies involving man-machine communication in the field of industrial complex processes, for instance production units (electric or nuclear power plants, oil-refineries or iron and steel-works), means of transportation/ transportation networks (airlines, ships, railway...). All of these systems include a centralized control post, or control room in which the human operators perform their control and supervision tasks. These tasks involve a high level of knowledge. This paper presents first the concept of man-machine communication in these systems and secondly a global methodological approach of man-machine system design. The last part is an extended description of a user interface design methodology, outlining potential needs related to new hypermedia technology.
