Prototyping

Prototyping is the activity of creating partial models of an artifact or system. It is foundational to design and engineering. There are three features of prototyping: 1) the models are incomplete 2) the models are used for communicating or testing ideas 3) the process is iterative, lessons learned from a prototype are implemented in the next prototype, gradually increasing the fidelity of the model.
