UI design for a Windows SCADA software supervisor of an automatic warehouse (2007)
This project was developed by Taiprora as a supervision software of the entire Warehouse storage divided into two different floors and containing four different cranes.
This SCADA software has been designed for Windows PC Systems connected to various PLCs in the plant.
Developed in 2007.
Role in this project
Within the Taiprora software development team, I dealt with the UX analysis and the user interface design, making - starting from the CAD in dwg format provided by the customer - a simplified map of the system divided into stations, roller conveyors, shuttles and stacker-cranes, which are assigned a different color in real time to identify their status.
Each color corresponds to a specific status, so that the operator constantly knows the status of each item or logic unit.
Specific detailed masks are also available for stacker-cranes and roller conveyors, where the operator can view specific statuses of all sensors, the missions in progress and the possibility for the operator to control further parameters.
An alarms area also completes the software: here the user can view all the alarms (warning messages, errors) shown in real time in the system, or view the history tables.
Finally, I made the various graphics such as slices, splash, about and icons, and all the other graphic elements used by the development team to make the supervisor dynamic.
