Let's say we have a web application that will have, more or less... hmm... 500 different pages. Some of them quite similar.
For the sake of user centred design, should I ask the design team to produce a high fidelity prototype of those 500 pages?!
If so, how to accomplish that on an acceptable workflow process? I mean, it is important, even for developers, to have a detailed application prototype, true, the more detailed, the better, but we can't say:
"Dear developers, please wait while I explore designers on a nonsense way so that hey can develop high fidelity prototypes so that I can then pass those to the user, and then back to designers for revision, and finally to you so that you can finally develop interactions (js) and look (css) on a user centred way".
Or can I ? :)
I mean: Is a high fidelity prototype based on ALL pages or some of them ? Is there a way (workflow) to make this without:
a) developers have a long wait until they can finally develop.
b) developers have to remake the code because of different proposes found during the process.
Please share :) I'm starting, I have a lot of questions... and hmmm. :) I'm a little lost while trying to see the big picture here.
