There exist multiple configurations for an RBS (Radio Base Station) in a telecommunication network. The combinations between equipment configurations and functional configurations are numerous. Due to this mapping between functional and equipment the validity of a configuration is complex. When developing or deploying an RBS it is important to understand the configuration. This degree project investigates the ability to visualize this domain with the environment Intentional Domain Workbench. The main method of doing this is creating two kind of type catalogues for equipment and functional. Then one can use the type catalogues to create configurations that then are able to map between each other. A basic prototype in the environment was developed which lets two types of users interact with the prototype. The two types of users have different views. That is for letting the specific type of user use the program in the best way possible. The prototype developed was tested by a group of prospective users. They did see potential in the prototype and gave suggestions of improvements for the future. Future improvements of the prototype would be to increase the validation making sure it would be hard make mistakes while using the prototype, and increase usability.
