ISO 18541-3:2021 Road vehicles — Standardized access to automotive repair and maintenance information (RMI) — Part 3: Functional user interface requirements.
I Scope
This document includes functional user interface requirements related to automotive repair and maintenance information (RMI) systems in order to standardize access to RMI for independent operators.
This document specifies all functional user interface requirements related to a vehicle manufacturer’s
RMI system. These requirements will reflect the deriving needs from the use cases as specified in
ISO 18541-1.

6.3 VM RMI system standardized navigation This subclause explains the key numbers in Figure 2. Figure 2 depicts the different entry points for RMI offered to a user in the VM RMI home page (key 1). In addition to a direct login (key 4) for frequent and experienced users of the specific VM RMI website, there is an entry point (key 2) for navigation based on ISO 18541-1. Whereas the direct login leads the user directly to the applications, features and components of the specific VM RMI system and to the VM specific navigation there-in (key 7), the entry point/link for standard base navigation leads the user to a page (key 5) displaying the use cases of ISO 18541-1, the so called “use cases map” see Clause 8. Usually the user will be requested to login, before the “use cases map” is displayed. The VM may alternatively not require a login for displaying the use cases map but require the login once a use case in the map is selected. The VM may optionally offer some information parts without login (key 3).ISO 18541-3 pdf download.
