Prototypes are an important part of product development process. Prototypes are generally an initial version of a product of which the developers/designers will scrutinise and learn from. It can take many revisions of a prototype until the final product has been released for manufacture.
Prototypes can come if lots of forms including:
Prototypes are created to give the designers/engineers a physical understanding of their product. This could consist of a basic visual model or a fully working and usable product.
Prototyping can be costly, depending how many versions of the prototype are made and what manufacturing process are used. The prototyping process can however save a lot of time and money ironing out any problem before production tooling is invested in.
