We present an implementation of the OMG’s Human-Usable Textual Notation (HUTN) [6] that provides a generic concrete syntax for MOF-based metamodels. The notation is summarised. Ways in which HUTN can be applied in order to improve the productivity of Model-Driven Engineering are identified. The use of HUTN to improve the quality of test suites for verifying model management operations (such as model-to-model transformation) is described. We also present a comparison of generic and domain-specific concrete syntax with HUTN.
