Designing Intelligent Systems
Layouts, Floorplans & Frameworks
Floorplan is an umbrella term that covers the different layout types, the structure of the controls used, and how to handle different use cases. An application contains normally several pages, with each page showing a single floorplan.
SAP Fiori elements provide a framework for generating UIs at runtime based on metadata annotations and predefined templates for the most used application patterns. They ensure design consistency, keep apps up to date with evolving design guidelines, and reduce the amount of frontend code for building SAP Fiori apps.
