From Dave's slides at start of the MBUI F2F

Why is model-based UI design valuable?

  • Separation of design concerns
  • Better documentation of UI design
  • Less effort to target multiple delivery platforms
  • Faster to develop and faster to update
  • You don't need to be a skilled programmer
  • You don't need to be an expert on each platform
  • Are the above true? What other reasons?

When to use Model-Based UI?

  • Data collection applications like forms
  • As UI for service back-ends
  • For transactional applications involving a sequence of UI tasks
  • But not for complex UI's such as editors?
  • What other considerations?
