Section Title

Coding and
Displays With
Time Data

Guideline Additional
Consistent Additional
meanings Information:
should be When coding
assigned is not
to codes, consistent,
from one the user's
display to task of
another. display
may be
made more
difficult than
if no auxiliary
coding were
used at all.
Coding should not increase
transmission time.
When task performance
requires or implies the need
to assess currency of
information within a display,
the information should be
annotated with time

Ref. 1 Ref. 2 HFE WG Comments or
additional information
5908 0700 See the Graphics
Design Standard V2 for
typical Coding Methods


An example of coding
increasing transmission
time would be where
the processing time
associated with an
algorithm increases the
latency with which the
operator receives the
data. See 1472,
Table XXII for maximum
system response times.
Having a time reference
is important when
seeing information
graphed in reference to
time. Ensuring that all
values that are graphed
with the same time
