If fully exploited, this information can produce interfaces which closely reflects a user's mental model of the information available or applicable to them.

This development process is illustrated in figure 2. From the designer's viewpoint the key components of a MB-IDE are the declarative models which store the conceptual representation of the interface. During recent years, the models supported by MB-IDEs have increased both in number and in expressiveness. The first-generation of MB-IDEs (typified by UIDE (Foley, 1995), MECANO (Puerta, 1996), and JANUS (Balzert, 1996» concentrated on modelling the underlying application domain using a domain model.
