Software Configuration Standards and Conventions

Before programming each project, our software configuration standards will be reviewed with the client.  Specific needs or customization requirements are identified in advance to ensure expectations for functionality and ease-of-use are met.

 

  • Graphical user interface standards (colors, fonts, schematics, symbols, pop-ups, trends...)
  • Navigation and display hierarchy
  • Tag name conventions
  • Alarming
