Mission critical environments

Our daily activity leads us to get involved in the configuration of mission critical enrivonments with a high criticality and emergence factor. That's why we supply different solutions aimed at such environments granting a global solution that will take into account all features affecting its operation.

Our daily activity leads us to get involved in the configuration of mission critical enrivonments with a high criticality and emergence factor. That’s why we supply different solutions aimed at such environments granting a global solution that will take into account all features affecting its operation.

Next article shares some of most characteristic variables of these environments which confer this critical character to the installation. Indirectly we will refer to some solutions in this regards to the issue.

Type of activity and type of installation

The type of activity to be carried out is a key feature in terms of labeling the criticality degree and at site.

Many activities might be object of surveillance. From process control surveillance, to security mission, traffic management, communication centers, emergency operations, etc.

All these are critical environments where any decision or incidence might lead to fatal consequences given the nature of its activity. To respond accordingly, it is essential to be provided with best in class technology and devices, thus improving conditions regarding the human-machine interface.

Decision-making processes

Following previous point, control and command centers are scenarios of decision-making processes. Decisions made are of a vital nature since they can affect the operation and safety not only of the installation, but also of the nearby environment, with a high risk.

To improve decision-making processes in such environments several aspects need to be taken into account. Among these, the room and space arrangement. To ensure an effective and efficient distribution among the operators and a correct visualization of the screens – both on the video wall and on the work table – is essential.

Indeed, there exist companies specialised in the ergonomic design of control centers. Besides this, the supply of an appropriate furniture is also vital. The case of LundHalsey consoles, these have a specific area to accommodate monitors at a lower level, improving view angle of the videowall.

Control centers are mission critical environments with the need of fast decision-making which entail a high risk degree

High pressure scenarios

Its critical and emergency features turn control rooms into high pressure scenarios. The stress generated given surveillance tasks, process management, or carrying out operations, which entail a high risk, lead to the high pressure scenarios.

In response to this, high-quality equipment and technology is key. This refers to high resolution videowall systems, high quality software for content sharing, audio and communication equipment suitable for this type of activity, etc.

Therefore, workplace conditions turn key when dealing with pressure. The finish of the table with rounded edges minimises health risks, the use of certified chairs for intensive use, as well as a design made in accordance with ergonomic criteria, are examples of this.

Real time decisions

One last refers to live character of control and command centres. In other words, incidences that may occur must be responded with a fast reaciton in the shortest amount of time possible. Real action time.

In order to react in the best possible way, it is important to have the optimal conditions for the visualization and processing of information. The way how information is processed will facilitate, or not, an efficient real time response.

Again, videowall systems become one of the key elements in this process. In addition to this, the proper display and arrangement of monitor screens for operator use is also required.

At Ergovisual we work every day in the configuration and building of control rooms, providing realiable solutions aimed at mission critical environments which help improve workplace conditions.
