User interfaces determine the process support that is really delivered to the user. In order to support a process effectively, individually tailored user interfaces have to be provided. Most process centered software engineering environments (PSEEs) provide predefined user interfaces, but only low-level languages which can be used by customers to build process-specific user interfaces.

This paper describes how user interfaces can be specified in the ADDD PSEE, and how these interfaces support the user during process enactment.
