Impact of Technological Support on the Workload of Software Prototyping



Prototyping is a broadly utilized iterative technique for brainstorming, communicating, and evaluating user interface (UI) designs. This research aims to analyze this process from three aspects: traditional UI prototyping, rapid prototyping, and prototyping for accessibility. We propose three novel approaches and realize them by introducing three artifacts:

  1. Eve, a sketch-based prototyping workbench that supports automation of transforming low fidelity prototypes to higher fidelities,
  2. Kiwi, a UI design pattern and guidelines library to support UI design pattern-driven prototyping,
  3. Personify, a persona-based UI design guidelines library for accessible UI prototyping.

We evaluate the usability of these artifacts, and the results indicate good usability and learnability. Furthermore, we use NASA-TLX to study the impact of using these three novel approaches on the subjective workload experienced by the designers during the software prototyping process. This work aims to extend prior work on UI prototyping and is broadly applicable to understand the impact of using deep learning, UI design patterns, and personas on the workload of UI prototyping.
