One of the most relied upon tool or process which helps in judging the progress as well as in maintaining the direction of a project is a Mockup Software.
What actually happens is that teams, whether they are working together from within the same office or virtually from different places, can always lose their direction and focus because of the many possibilities being considered and tried out. One thing leads to the other and before you know it, a lot of time can get wasted on developing options and features that are all ultimately scrapped or do not figure in the final product.
Another commonly encountered issue is that of a misdirected output, with the desired function and output not being at par with what was actually needed.
The reasons for the above errors can be many like communication errors, unplanned approach, and confusion due to multiple revisions in the plan; however, the outcome is usually the same – A Failed Project or wasted of time and efforts.
These are some of the important issues which a Mockup Software targets and eliminates along with allowing for easy testing and evaluation of features and functions being developed.
The range and extent of functions and features that a Mockup Software offers totally depends upon the stage of a project, features needing to be tested and who is going to use these mockups.
Very often mockups are evaluated for limited functionality and focus on particular issues and topics. This however is not a rule and mockups with all the features are also used as beta versions of the software to gain feedback from a broad base of final users.
Based on this feedback received from the Mockup Software evaluation, companies and developers then work on improvements and suggestions received to make their software better and usable.
Mockup Software can also be used for micro level evaluation, for example to check a single function, and derive results from the tests to enhance the products power and usability on the whole.
