Best practices for SCADA application development.

A commonly encountered challenge is to develop pages that can be used on many screens where those screens may vary greatly in size, aspect ratio and resolution.

There are several tools and techniques available to help with this challenge, but there are limitations to what is physically possible.  If you design a page with a large amount of information to be shown on a high-resolution, wall-sized monitor, it cannot be displayed well on a low-resolution monitor or on a cell phone.
