In this paper we present an approach and a software prototype that enables domain experts to program control software in the automation domain. The approach follows the principles of domain-specific modeling providing a graphical domain-specific language to model the control cycle of an injection molding machine, a user interface to manipulate and monitor the control cycle as well as code generators to generate control code that can be executed by the machine. As result, domain experts like machine operators can manipulate and monitor the control cycle directly on the touch-screen of a machine without detailed software development expertise.
