Model-based User Interface Design (MBUID) is a design approach where models play a key role in developing interactive systems. The main goal of a model-based approach is to acquire the knowledge and rules and to model the domain and generate a user interface. The process goes through several steps of refining before achieving a final and accepted user interface. In a MBUID process, focus is majorly on context-of-use where the interactive system is target to multiple devices. This master project demonstrates how model-based approach can enhance the interactive applications in a multi-target environment. The project aim is to focus on supporting a design by addressing the change of platforms. The project also concentrates on the architecture of Cameleon Reference Framework (CRF), which is widely considered MBUID process that helps designers in creating user interfaces supporting multiple targets or multiple contexts. The case study is intended to give insight and deep understanding on the model-based interface design, benefits, challenges and future research in designing effective interactive applications. The project also aims at taking a use case system and implementing domain and task model, an abstract user interface, a concrete user interface and a final user interface by visually representing the system design in multiple contexts of use.
