图形化的用户界面可以凭直觉来使用,并且可以调整以适应各种任务。工作区一分为二:一个是固定的布局,另一个是可以通过使用标签进行切换的布局。在界面底部的状态显示区将显示通讯服务器传递来的讯息。使用特殊的可配置的界面元素来实现各种功能。这种“HMI Controls”可以在配置模式下自由的设计布局。工作区可以被保存。针对典型的应用场景提供预定义模板。在运行模式下,一个配置好的工作区可以被“开始”,或者说被调用。


测试序列可以被自动化使得测试结果特别容易复现并且支持非常复杂的功能测试。经过验证,DTS Monaco也可以对电子控制单元(ECU)没有规定的部分进行参数化。这意味着在所有相关的通信等级中除了正常情况测试之外,可以对错误情况进行测试。通过参数化的配置可以完成各种通讯水平上的测试。通讯数据和测试结果可以被记录下来。
