You must read the Performance Horses case study in Interact Resources before starting this assessment item.
Your assignment is to develop the design for the Performance Horses control panel. This design is to be a wireframe only design, at this stage. You are to use one of the two designs as the basis for your design. You may, of course, modify that design as a result of any feedback or
good ideas that you have since developed.
The Performance Horses control panel case study is located in Interact Resources. You need to read this case study before starting this assessment item.
You are to:
1. Create a set of wireframes for the Performance Horses control panel design (50 marks). These wireframes should meet the requirements for the Performance Horses control panel. You need to show:
a. Wireframes for all pages in the Performance Horses control panel (10 marks),
b. All screen components for each page (10 marks),
c. Navigation between pages, such as buttons, breadcrumb trails, etc. (10 marks),
d. General placement for all items on each page. This can be in the formof a template where, for example, a table could be used to show a picture or logo of a system, etc. (10 marks),
e. Help functions for users (10 marks),
2. Create a click-through prototype of your wireframes using Balsamiq Mockups Links in presentation mode (see https://docs.balsamiq.com/desktop/linking/ for details). When the links in your presentation mode mockup are working correctly, then export your presentation to PDF (see https://docs.balsamiq.com/desktop/exporting/#exporting-to-pdf (https://docs.balsamiq.com/desktop/exporting/)). This PDF file is what you will submit for assessment. (20 marks)
3. Write a Word document (.doc or .docx) that
a. Discusses all the design decisions and your reasoning for these decisions in your design (20 marks),
b. A description of how the design meets the Performance Horses control panel requirements in each sub-system (10 marks).
