Speed response by enabling the modern, connected worker with CIMPLICITY software

Improve operator response with modern visualization


CIMPLICITY changes the HMI experience to enable decision support for the user.


The overall HMI layout is designed to provide users with the most informed, personalized view of the problem or task at hand – for faster response and fewer errors.


Additionally, sophisticated alarm management and escalation capabilities can assist operators to see and act on the alarms that matter, improving efficiency and reducing risk.

High Performance HMI & web-based dashboards

High Performance HMI, based on the ISA 101 standards, increases operator efficiency through better screens.


With a simple and consistent design, High Performance screens boost situational awareness, alarm detection, and productivity, while decreasing the risk of errors.


Operators and technicians recognize and understand information with greater ease and speed.
