Advantages of prototyping in the design cycle

Advantages of prototyping in the design cycle A prototype is the working model of the product or solution that is created before manufacturing the actual product. Prototyping is not only used in Engineering but also in marketing, education and the military. Prototyping is one of the essential processes during the design cycle. The diagram below shows the design process including the prototyping part. Figure 1. Engineering Design cycle The following are the advantages of prototyping in the design cycle:   Prototyping gives an idea of the final product. It is difficult to visualize the look of the final product in the early stages of designing but when there is a prototype, we can get a basic look of the product…
