Conclusion

The big win of SEGUIA is that any change in the underlying models can be automatically reflected into a similar change in the generated presentation. Having the underlying models fully specified, an automated generation requires an average time of 15 minutes, mostly due to the manual operations. A regeneration of a previously generated presentation takes at most 10 minutes. The proposed approach can therefore reduce the cost of producing a first presentation, but also cuts the time every time the models are evolving. Of course, the final presentation should be interpreted as a first sketch to be further adapted to user's needs. If time and resources are insufficient, this first proposal is a workable user interface that can be incorporated in a final Windows application. It seems that designers are appreciating automated generation and computer-aided design of such a presentation unequally. When resources are tight, the "blind" process is launched; when time constraints allow some flexibility or when the designer wants to be more involved in the process, the computer-aided process is preferred. This conclusion seems to confirm that fully automated generation tend to be replaced by a designer-controlable process, which is more desirable.
