I have questions about managing UI design work. The typical scenario
is where we use wireframes to mock representative screens. This is the
stage when we have completed the design iterations and work needs to
be presented to development, tech-specs, QA, or all other engineering
These wireframes are later modified, enhanced with subsequent releases
requirements. For example if one is working for a product requirement
release 3.3, then he has to carry over all the wireframes (relevant
ones only) from very beginning with additional changes into it. That
is lot of work to manage, plus, it reduces the efficiency of the
person managing it.
I have a question regarding tools/methodology that any of you might be
following. The challenges here are --
1. How do you manage the versioning/releases, track changes, without
getting too manual with the UI Design processes?
2. Is there any Document Management tool (e.g. Telelogic DOORs) that
anybody ever used for UI design management?
3. I have come across iRise which seems to be very impressive. Has
anybody dealt with iRise on the issues I mentioned?
To give you more insight into our methods -- we are using Visio and
using Clearcase for achieving/versioning them. This is not the best
way to handle the UI design, but we have not found anything better
Any suggestion, pointer, discussion will be highly regarded.
