This paper will give a short overview of developments and methods in the area of graphical user interfaces. As an example a User Interface Management System (UIMS) as a dialogue design tool and an open CAD system with a graphical user interface will be described. These systems result from developments realized in Darmstadt by the Computer Graphics Center (ZGDV) and the Fraunhofer Computer Graphics Research Group (FhG-AGD). Under the perspective of integration of the different aspects, the possibilities to support the design process will be discussed. These aspects are to use methods of artificial intelligence, to unify the presentation of those methods, and to realize those processes in parallel.
