Schneider Electric Wonderware InTouch Software Wins 2015 UX Design Award

Schneider Electric Software, a global leader in industry software and part of Schneider Electric, today announced its Wonderware InTouch human machine interfacesoftware has won a 2015 UX Design award. The award honors outstanding design and user orientation in products, digital solutions and services, part of an annual competition managed by the International Design Center of Berlin and presented at the IFA Consumer Electronics Show in Berlin the week of September 7.

UX Design Award winners were determined by a panel of independent and expert jurists, each with different competencies and specializations, thus ensuring a balanced evaluation of the various entries in the fields of user orientation and design quality. Fifty product solutions from 13 countries were nominated during this year’s IFA show. The award criteria is based on the user experience and takes a comprehensive view of how users interact with the nominated products and services, including the emotional, cognitive, aesthetic and ergonomic aspects and context of use, user integration, serviceability, design quality and degree of innovation.

According to the jurists’ decision, “Wonderware InTouch HMI software provides high clarity and fault tolerance to improve the user experience and increase efficiency in industrial production processes. A clear and intuitive design aims at unambiguousness and an intuitive grasp of information. The UX Design thus helps to reduce operator fatigue, as well as failure rates and efficiency gaps.”

“InTouch software and its situational awareness capabilities have been proven to help maximize productivity and availability while minimizing costs, such as raw materials, energy consumption and waste,” said John Krajewski, director of HMI and SCADA product management for Schneider Electric Software. “For example, because InTouch software’s situational awareness graphics allow operators to track current processes more easily and intuitively, they can assess and troubleshoot abnormal situations 40 percent faster than when using traditional HMI. Winning this award validates our approach to providing a superior user experience. Wonderware InTouch allows operators to take a proactive part in improving the plant’s productivity, safety and efficiency, and it demonstrates our commitment to enabling greater operations optimization, problem resolution and workforce improvements.”
