Estimate the Number of Screens for a Project

When you have determined your information requirements, you can estimate the number of screens that need to be designed. The number will be influenced by the:

  • Anticipated number of viewer destinations that require different screens
  • Type and number of monitoring and regulating tasks that can be divided into logical units
  • Amount of information to be displayed, keeping in mind that displays need to be clear to view in a runtime environment

Using frames is another layout option if you have several objects on a screen that will change during runtime, based on a similar set of conditions.
