The advantage of the touch screen is that ANY of the panels can be configured to do all of the controls. So if one helm is knocked out you can control every from somewhere else - infinity duplicate controls.

It's just that the interface was too complicated and there was no training and the trainees were supposed to learn on the job while doing 24hour/day shifts
