Case Study - Overview
A Practitioners Approach
Roger Pressman, David Lowe
This website is a partial prototype of the fictional SafeHome Products application - a case study developed to support the book: Web Engineering: A Practitioners Approach, written by Roger Pressman and David Lowe.
The website prototype is only a partial implementation, and aims to illustrate the main components of the site and some of the design elements. On each of the prototype pages there is a link in the top right corner which, when clicked, provides some additional information regarding the design of that page.
Note: Where the real WebApp would contain a link, but in this prototype the link isn't implemented, it will be shown with a dotted underline.
Case Study - Bonus Information
The first bonus item is an extract from the book which summarises the initial discussions when the idea for SafeHome is first being proposed. It illustrates the basic concept behind the site.
The second item is a screendump which illustrates the early concept for the site. It would be useful to compare the screendump to this prototype.
The final pair of items show the initial information structure - firstly as a preliminatry sketch and then as a refined model for SafeHome-Assured.com.
This website is only a partial prototype of the fictional SafeHome Products application. As such this link is not yet operational. Non-operational links are shown with a dotted underline.
