This paper describes a method for designing a user interface from a variety of presentation elements (e.g., icon, menu, flowchart, bar chart, etc.). The interface is composed hierarchically, and at each step the most appropriate design alternatives (hereafter denoted by “As”) are selected, based on “hierarchical morphological multicriteria design” (HMMD). We will present a detailed example for data processing in a decision support system (DSS) for multicriteria ranking.
