This document recommends a human-machine interface (HMI) design process that is centred around the needs of the operator, allowing effective monitoring and control of the system. This document builds on the SIGTTO publication Recommendations for Designing Cargo Control Rooms, which recommends a human-centred approach to the design of cargo control rooms (CCRs).

Specific guidance and examples are provided to explain the HMI design process, including examples of key questions to consider when specifying the requirements of the HMI. An example of a task-based display for a loading operation is provided to show how user feedback is used to improve the presentation of information to the operator.
