A storyboard is a logical and conceptual description of system functionality for a specific scenario, including the interaction required between the system users and the system.

In IBM® Rational® Requirements Composer, a storyboard is represented as a frame-by-frame depiction of a usage scenario, where each frame has a description of the actions that lead to the next frame. It contains an in-depth walkthrough of a linear story, represented as graphical frames on a timeline with sample data. In essence, a storyboard is a sequence of frames that elaborates the user experience. It includes a frame list, timeline viewer, and frames. Frames are basically instances of sketches within a storyboard.
