Graphical Requirements Exploration

Interface construction tool showing user designs and an example of user annotation

Communication of requirements information from multiple eventual end-users is a challenge. Our approach allows users to communicate requirements information through the construction of graphical user interface mockups augmented with textual argumentation, that is, descriptions and explanations. Using a tool that facilitates this activity, users create a set of interface mockups built from windows and widgets that act as communication to software developers along with attached argumentation.
