Title: A METHOD FOR DISPLAYING CONFIGURATION AND STATUS OF A PLANT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for supervising a technical system. The method comprises the steps of: retrieving a set of system data which represent a status and/or a configuration of the technical system to be supervised; outputting on a display unit of an operator terminal a first picture showing a part of the set of system data; generating at least a first and a second type of graphical information from the set of system data; associating a first data layer with the first type of graphical information and a second data layer with the second type of graphical information; receiving from a user input unit of the operator terminal a first selection signal indicating if the first and/or said second data layer or parts thereof is to be output on the display unit; generating a second picture as an integration of the graphical information corresponding to the selected data layer or parts thereof and the first picture; and outputting the second picture on the display unit.
