What problems are there?
Engineering the design can take a long time.
Slow feedback loop for each design iteration.
Communication problems between design and engineering.
What is rapid prototyping?
Implementing partial product functionality as fast as possible.
Not worrying about any production issues.
It's like magic - smoke and mirrors.
What is purpose of rapid prototyping?
How can we design with prototyping?
Produce product requirements.
Distinguish between two life cycles:
Full product design life cycle.
Rapid product design life cycle.
The rapid life cycle is a step inside the full life cycle.
Why is this good?
No engineering in the rapid product design life cycle.
Rapid feedback loop.
Better communication of design.
Better communication of technical constraints.
Faster design process with better products
