For that reason, they attempted to summarize prototyping models in one consistent framework. The prototyping model is based on the idea of creating the entirety or part of a system in a pilot version, called the prototype. 57 RNB Global University, Bikaner. Course Code - 13004500

The Prototyping Model It can be viewed as a process, either one that is part of the larger SDLC or the central approach that defines the SDLC in itself. The goal is ultimately to build in various versions and consistently refine those versions until a final product is reached. The emphasis is placed on the creation of the software, with less attention to documentation. It is also a user-centric approach, because user feedback is fundamental to develop subsequent prototypes and, eventually, the final product. 59 RNB Global University, Bikaner. Course Code - 13004500

The Prototyping Model A prototyping model essentially entails four different stages: 1. user’s requirements and needs are analyzed and identified. 2. the team will develop a working prototype of the product, which is then implemented so that the users can test it and provide real-time feedback and experience. 3. If improvements and changes are found necessary, the prototype is revised and refined, and a new prototype is released and implemented for testing. 60 RNB Global University, Bikaner.

The Prototyping Model 4. This subcycle will go on until the product is generally accepted by the users and no longer requires substantial changes or updates, at which time the final version is released. There are three types of prototyping, according to specific needs of the project: exploration, experimentation, and evolution. By using a form of the prototyping model, a development project can easily adapt to changing requirements, because there is constant feedback. 61 RNB Global University, Bikaner.
