Löwgren, J. (1987). Applying a Rapid Prototyping System to Control Panel Dialogues. Technical Report LiTH-IDA-R-87-26, Department of Computer and Information Science, Linköping University, Sweden. (bibtex),
Abstract: In this paper, a rapid prototyping system called IDEN (for Interface Design ENvironment) is presented. This is a system for prototyping the physical part of a user interface (e. g. button panels, trackballs, graphic or text displays etc.) as well as the dialogue part. The results of the evaluation of IDEN by prototyping a part of a large application are discussed. We find some problems with IDEN in particular and rapid prototyping systems in general, as well as some interesting prospects of developing IDEN into more than a rapid prototyping system. Among these prospects are the areas of user training and automatic documentation generation.
