Prototyping is the first step in the journey to market, revealing hidden obstacles and unforeseen challenges, and the initial look and feel of the part. Why would you wait until the manufacturing stage to discover problems, when you could have uncovered and solved them earlier at a much less expensive price?
An experimental process where design teams implement ideas into tangible forms from paper to digital. Teams build prototypes of varying degrees of fidelity to capture design concepts and test on users. With prototypes, you can refine and validate your designs so your brand can release the right products.
EPISODE 205: Summary
Today's show will cover creating a working and testable model, an alpha version or 1.0, so you can stress it internally for results and UX, and prepare including improvements & upgrades and start the beta process with customers.
This is how we use the Agile Project Management process. Before we bring in a customer to participate in building it for them we need to decide whether it can be built and deliver the results expected.
EPISODE 206: The Why of Prototyping
We believe in the co-development process but not from a clean sheet of paper. You have to be sure that the project you bring the customer into has a high probability of working. Also you need to be ahead of them in designing and building their version.
EPISODE 207: What Are Your Options?
The smart place to start is see if you can translate a concept from a piece of paper into something tangible. That starts with translating the data compiled in the QFD process into a paper prototype. It gives you the ability to think through results, UX, and build requirements.
Once you have this initial offer, it allows you to test it internally and understand whether this project has a future.
EPISODE 208: The How - A Step By Step Process
If you recall when we discussed Design Thinking as part of the Agile Process, this is what it will look like in operation. You employ a systematic approach to data collection, then a process for working through the information to produce a testable offer by the customer.
