Hello folks.

 I’m looking for an inexpensive conceping, modelling and requirements tool.

We are doing a new concept and I need to be able to do the concepts, requirement and design in a professional way but I don't want to pay the earth for it.

Can anybody recommend something? (Less than $200 US would be good)

Thanks.

Visual Paradigm is widely used. The modeler version is around $100

Microsoft Visio is a common modelling tool. The standard edition is $250 from MS and about $210 from Amazon.

There are several Open Source modelling tools too. Here's a list of several

I have personally used Dia and OpenOffice Draw.
Dia is designed specifically for modelling, but OpenOffice is easier to use and make look professional.

Of course, you probably already have MS Word. You can actually do some nice flow charts and graphs right in Word. This is especially good if you only need to do it once or twice since you won't need to install/learn anything new.
