The Confluence Dynagram has a radar shape and is therefore a multidimensional configurator. It can thus capture and visualize the properties of prototypes and their interdependencies and possible limitations.

Thus, Confluence Dynagram can help design thinking teams to see, discuss, and derive dependencies between factors and their effects in the prototype profile before creating a prototype.

Experiences from prototype tests can then be entered into the Confluence Dynagram. By saving different statuses, a development of the prototypes is documented and can thus be used for reflection.
