    Abstract

    The main task of operators in the modern nuclear power station is to monitor and control the processes related to power production and safety. In order to efficiently support operators' tasks the human-system interface should, e.g., support awareness of the process and collaboration with different stakeholders. In a Finnish project, novel affordances of smart environments, the aim is to develop an interaction concept and a prototype for more efficient and effective operation of complex industrial processes. The central element in this is "affordance table" which is equipped with innovative smart artefacts based on, e.g., tangible computing and virtual reality applications. In the present theoretical paper we first present a conceptual model and definition of affordance table based on James Gibson's ecological theory. After that, suggestions are made for a combination of smart tools to be applied for supporting the monitoring and control of the power process. (14 refs.)
