The Basics Of Control Room Design

A control room is a place where effective man and machine interaction is paramount for operational success. This can be achieved solely through effective control room design and implementation. Along with the necessary functionality and consideration to ergonomics, an emergency operations center or traditional control room need to be aesthetically appealing. While there is a fine balance to strike, itís not impossible to accomplish this while keeping budget considerations in mind. Thatís precisely why this task should be handled by specialists. Irrespective of the size of the control room, design, ergonomics and functionality need to go hand-in-hand.

A control room is essentially an operations center that houses critical control and monitoring equipment. It can be found in military as well as civilian operations.
