The 7 parts of ISO 11064
Part 1: Principles For The Design Of Control Centers
As a human centered approach, the design begins with the operator. End users participate in the iterative design process working with an interdisciplinary design team, and provide task and link analysis, and risk assessment information which is documented as the design basis.
Part 2: Principles For The Arrangement Of Control Suites
Based on information obtained from a task and link analysis, square footages are estimated, adjacencies are determined and the space is laid out to facilitate all activities housed in the control room.
Part 3: Control Room Layout
Ergonomic principles and the task and link analysis drive the layout of workstation arrangements, off-workstation visual displays and control room maintenance.
Part 4: Layout And Dimensions Of Workstations
The needs of the operator and other users are the focus of the workstation design, utilizing ergonomic principles to determine the overall dimensions of the visual display.
Part 5: Displays And Controls
Maximizing the safe, reliable, efficient, and comfortable use of graphic screen displays and controls is the goal of the human machine interface.
Part 6 – Environmental Requirements For Control Centers
The overall environment in a control room needs to be optimized to positively affect operator performance. Lighting, acoustics, temperature, humidity, and vibration are all key factors that come into play.
Part 7: Principles For The Evaluation Of Control Centers
The post occupancy evaluation after a control center is up and running is the final step to determine if the design is successful. The operators provide valuable feedback having been involved in the project from the very beginning. Lessons learned are evaluated, documented and recommendations for improvements (if any) are communicated.
