Comparative analysis tools for interfaces prototyping


Comparative analysis tools for user interfaces prototyping was conducted using a mixed method consisting in the implementation of active experiment with the use of tools for the research group, conducting surveys and expert analysis of technical parameters of tools for prototyping. Study results have helped determine the values of diagnostic variables that have been used in the multi-selection method of the best
tool selection.
