This report outlines the design, construction and commissioning of a Human Machine Interface for an operational gold recovery processing plant. The HMI was deployed in accordance to the Clampton Process Control Philosophy developed by various different professions of engineering and metallurgy.

The project is now complete, with the processing plant being fully operational utilising the HMI for visualisation of the current process control operations. The software that was initially used was Rockwell’s Factory Talk View Site Edition, however it was later decided by the client that Schneider Electrics’ Vijeo Citect 7.30, should be the software environment in which the HMI is developed.

The system was constructed so that it was accessible to operators of various abilities and skills. Success of the project can be judged, in part, by the positive feedback provided by the client.

This report also covers the extensive amount of documentation and manuals for instruments that were used within certain phases of design and implementation of this project.
