Abstract Nowadays with increasing automation, monitoring production processes in a continuous way gets more and more difficult. We investigate how the application of graphical 2D and 3D displays influences conductive and interfering aspects during monitoring situations. Our goal is to develop an appropriate visualization of process data, which enhance the operator's understanding of the current process. On the one hand, we consider presence and the possibility to interact with the visualized data as conductive factors. On the other hand, we see task complexity and additional activities added to monitoring task as interfering factors, which can negatively disturb operator's performance. For examining our research questions, we used different data visualizations from a thermo-hydraulic process producing particleboards. Presence was measured with a self-developed questionnaire.
