CHAPTER 24 PROTOTYPING WITH VISIO

Prototyping Tools

INTRODUCTION TO VISIO AS A PROTOTYPING TOOL

Microsoft Visio is diagramming software used to create business and technical diagrams that document and organize complex ideas, processes, and systems. Visio diagrams allow communication of ideas in a way that text and numbers cannot. As a prototyping tool, Visio is as easy as dragging and dropping shapes to represent anything from desktop software to websites.

Some benefits of Visio are its fairly low learning curve, the powerful template-making capabilities that allow easy reuse with a library of user interface objects, the grid to support drawing and layout control, and the incorporation of high-fidelity graphics.
