Paper Abstract

This paper describes an approach for a platform- and implementation-independent design of user interfaces using the UIMS idea. It is a result of a detailed examination of object-oriented techniques for program specification and implementation. This analysis leads to a description of the requirements for man-machine interaction from the software- developers point of view. On the other hand, the final user of the whole system has a different view of this system. He needs metaphors of his own world to fulfill his tasks. It's the job of the user interface designer to bring these views together. The approach, described in this paper, helps bringing both kinds of developers together, using a well defined interface with minimal communication overhead.
