Many changes in control systems result from a prolonged plant life. Therefore, this change process must be automated. In a prototypical framework, the control system and plant visualization engineering is performed automatically by means of standardized communication and a standardized data format. In practice, there is no uniform definition of what process visualization images have to look like. As safety-relevant aspects are important in production, such an automated system will only be accepted if the user interface is intuitive and user-friendly - briefly 'anthropotechnically' correct. Thus, with a layout manager, users specify partly how generated process images have to look like.
