Whether a small or large business, when business models involve building and distributing a product, creating a prototype of a product before its initial launch can generate a competitive edge.
As prototypes come in all shapes and sizes, they’re developed and used in almost every type of industry to be properly tested and evaluated by a represented ideal customer prior to large scale production.
Developing and implementing a prototype can compile a number of benefits for a business:
1. Visual Representation – Prototypes not only offer an accurate visual representation of a final product but allows fine tuning of features and proper scale. Once a prototype is created, the business owner can see where product issues may reside, address them, and have the designer alter them immediately.
2. Stand Out – A prototype of a company’s product is an advantage when approaching capital investors. With a thoroughly evaluated, working model of a product that illustrates an ultimate goal, investors or other financial resources will see a company as a sound investment.
3. New Ideas – The process of designing and building a prototype can spark new ideas that can help jumpstart a business. During the prototyping process, a business can take their operations of the next level with a successful product and walk away with new solutions. For that reason, prototyping promotes ongoing product improvement.
