What is powerSTORYBOARD
PowerSTORYBOARD allows you to Prototype your Use Cases in PowerPoint using what we call Use Case Storyboards and also automatically generate your Functional Test Cases
Communicate requirements more clearly using the concept of “Use Case Storyboards”
At the heart of powerSTORYBOARD, is defining and presenting your requirements with a “Use Case Storyboard”, which is an integration of the concepts behind “Use Cases”, “Wireframes or UI Mockups”, and “Storyboards”.
Each step is associated with a Wireframe
Create UI Wireframes in PowerPoint using powerWIREFRAME
Use Case Storyboard walkthroughs allow you to simulate your Use Cases
We can automatically insert navigation links and the step text onto your slides
Why you should adopt Use Case Storyboards
Traditionally a use case with main and alternate flows will translate into multiple linear storyboards with a lot of the steps and their wireframes duplicated. This happens because the main flow steps need to be duplicated into each of the linear storyboards. powerSTORYBOARD avoids this duplication by sharing the common steps.
Reduces Conflicting Requirements
Rather than having your user interaction flow described across the traditionally separate deliverables of use cases, wireframes and storyboards, powerSTORYBOARD combines them into one deliverable ensuring they always stay in sync.
Communicates Requirements More Clearly
In addition to the reduction of conflicting requirements adding clarity,… by allowing your stakeholders, developers and testers to simulate the use cases, they gain a better understanding of the requirements.
Test Case Generation keeps your test cases up to date and 100% accurate.
powerSTORYBOARD will also generate test cases for each unique path through the “use case” and export these test cases to Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS), Word and Excel. This will not only save you a significant amount of your project budget normally dedicated to creating test cases by manually translating requirements into test cases, but will also ensure your test cases are 100% consistent with your requirements.
