Thanks for the tip, but what I need is just a lightweight
troubleshooting help, such as provided by a hint.
I'm dealing with the human interface of a family of automatic machines
to make checkbooks.
When some problem happens, a synoptic of the machine is shown,
displaying the current state of all the sensors of the section involved,
with the one(s) causing the error highlighted.
Most of it is self-explanatory, and the operator doesn't usually need
anything more, but to ease troubleshooting a supplementary information
may be helpful, such as where the sensor is physically connected (e.g.
"Box #2, Input 15"), or , depending on the display style selected, the
more precise description of the sensor location and purpose("Blade motor
encoder", "Binder temperature", "Feeder 2", etc.).
Project planning question: when it's 90% done, are we halfway or not yet?
