Front-End Design Prototyping Tool


The front end of design is critical for product success. It includes activities such as problem identification, problem definition, requirements and specifications development, and concept generation and development. Prototypes can play important roles in front-end design work, but historical emphases on prototype use in design have been for supporting back-end design activities. This Front-end Prototyping Planning Tool was developed from research on practitioners’ use of prototypes in front-end design work to support designers in thinking about how to intentionally use prototypes to engage stakeholders during front-end design.
