So, the gui will be 8 squares on the screen coloured red or green according to whether the corresponding output is on or not. A touch toggles the output.

This relay module - does it just take 8 5v inputs, or do you need to communicate with it via some sort of protocol?

Make/Model of the touch screen?

I thought I had posted this here before but I guess not.
I was asked to do something very similar and my decision was to avoid Arduino altogether. Moved the project to a Raspberry Pi and it was much easier.
Electronics and firmware/software design and assistance. No project too small

I can believe that.

Memory and amount of data to handle will be a great obstacle - Arduinos can handle touch screens as such but it's definitely not their forte. Myself if sticking to the embedded route I'd probably dig up my ESP32 for a project like this.

Handling the relays is trivial of course with an Arduino.
Quality of answers is related to the quality of questions. Good questions will get good answers. Useless answers are a sign of a poor question.

 I didn't think about that, thank you. but I did think to use a sd card for the touchscreen GUI.
