Although one of the main reasons for prototyping is to involve users, they are
normally involved in evaluating some prototype which has already been
designed. Designers start from the users' more-or-less articulated requirements,
and develop a prototype which tends to take the perspective of the designers and
the software engineers themselves. Users are not normally involved in the design
of the prototype itself. Figure 5.1 illustrates the relationship between users and
designers.

Much to his surprise, the designers opened Microsoft Excel and used a template
file to implement his designs. The file looked like nothing he had ever seen in
Excel before. The spreadsheet grid was changed into a layout grid, and the
worksheets resembled software window layouts rather than spreadsheets. He
learned in the session how, by using only copy and paste commands, the
designers could quickly create his basic window layout. In fact, within the hour
the two designers ...

nterface prototyping is a technique that has been used for many years in the web
application and web development industries. It is meant to solicit end-user and
stakeholder feedback early on in the design process. Gathering this critical
information helps designers make decisions about the layout and placement of
elements, such as buttons, images, and clickable interactions within the overall
arrangement of an interface. These critical decisions help designers create an
end product ...

Based on the provided feedback during virtual prototyping, the software
engineering models can be adapted (7). This sequence can be systematically
repeated until there is a common understanding of the problem domain. In the
following, we will explain in more detail the similarity between prototypes and
models (software engineering models) (Sect. 2.1), the kind of software
engineering models we support (Sect. 2.2), our methodology from a designer
thinker's perspective (Sect. 2.3) ...

discussed, most of the issues that hinder the process, and material and
techniques commonly used, prevent designers from conducting evaluation on
realistic settings. These issues and consequent requirements are relevant
because, as said in [119], prototypes, apart from serving their communication and
concept design purposes, are most valuable when they allow designers to
conduct usability tests on it. Thus, the generation of prototypes that cannot be
carried and used on a ...
