Speed of Innovation – How to Master Rapid Prototyping

Speed of Innovation – How to Master Rapid Prototyping | FUTURE of INNOVATION | Scoop.it
Those who can sketch, build, create maquettes, and quickly create elegant prototypes are also essential in helping us transform ideas into possibilities and then into testable artifacts. Prototypers are people who like to make things, and prototyping well is an essential contributor to the speed of your innovation efforts. This is where we translate product and service ideas into tangibles that we can see, touch, taste and smell (especially if it’s food), and certainly use. This step is critical to transforming concepts into a workable form that can be evaluated not only for fit with the needs and desires of customers, but also for manufacturability and packaging, or service delivery, as well as for design refinement and cost modeling. A prototype is in fact an experiment, the purpose of which is to determine what works and doesn’t work. The principles of experimentation in the sciences is defined by the scientific method. It’s an activity done to “try something,” and in a rigorous
