Engineering Engineering Education Purposes of Prototyping Learning Will it work? How well does it work? meet customer needs? Communication How does it look? How does it feel? How does it work? Integration Ensure components work together Milestones Demonstrate functionality Engineering Engineering Education Benefits of Prototyping Reduce the risk of costly iterations Help detect unanticipated phenomena (physical) Help test several parameters quickly (analytical) Improve early concept exploration Prevent getting ‘married’ to bad idea Engineering Engineering Education Physical Comprehensive Focused Analytical Engineering Engineering Education Physical Comprehensive Focused Analytical Engineering Engineering Education Physical Comprehensive Focused Analytical Engineering Engineering Education Physical Comprehensive Focused Analytical Engineering Engineering Education Physical Comprehensive Focused Analytical Engineering Engineering Education Prototyping Types Concept Models visualization, communication, marketing Form-Fit Models visualization, feel, assembly (how well parts fit together), rudimentary motions/functions.
