Abstract (English)

With the digital transformation of industries as proposed by Industry~4.0, there will be an increased amount of data collected and exchanged between enterprise systems.

Software developers and domain experts are exposed to complex data specifications when dealing with enterprise interoperability. It is a major challenge to understand standards specifications and ensure interoperability in an increasing connected world. In this paper we propose the unique combination of model-driven techniques and interactive data visualisation to simplify the understanding by exploring specifications and data visually without the need to program up front. With our proposed approach it is possible to model and execute interactions of end users with different types of visualisation in a visualisation process. Compared to existing work the advantages of this presented approach are (1) a model-driven tool-independent solution that clearly separates data navigation from change of presentation for increased re-usability and (2) combines them in a visualisation process that (3) can be modelled and executed without the need of programming.
