Cockpit design fail? Too much information methinks.
For discussion. Do you show EVERYTHING being monitored in green, or just the exceptions in red?
If you look closely at fighter jet cockpits, they are amazingly simple.
Attitude, altitude, bearing, airspeed. Right in the middle.
Surrounding that are radar, radio, weapons and basic systems stuff.
To me, this seems like over the top. If the system is clever enough to show the engine #2 oil pressure as nominal, it should be clever enough to hide that until it becomes out of nominal.
If that happens, you show the red light, and then the relevant supporting system status. And then more by choice.
What do I know? I'm not a pilot or an aircraft designer.
Could be something much deeper going on here, like reminding the pilot that he has a job, and giving him/her stuff to appear to be watching over.
Interesting design dynamics perhaps.
