The time-to-market for human machine interfaces in the German automotive industry has to be reduced. The shortening of innovation cycles in other relevant industry fields and international competitors increase the pressure on German car manufacturers and their suppliers. Model-based user interface development is supposed to reduce the development time significantly thus improving the manufactures’ competitiveness. Therefore, a new domain specific modeling language for the specification of automotive human machine interfaces is being sought. Past approaches with similar objectives have either failed or have not been successfully established across the industry as a holistic solution. Within the scope of a new cooperative project whose partners cover the supply chain of the user interface development in the automotive industry for the first time completely, a common solution should be developed and manifested as an industry standard.
