Rapid Prototyping ModelThe Rapid Prototyping Model
is designed to develop acomplete, unambiguous set of requirements early in theanalysis phase of the lifecycle by conducting frequentreviews of a functional prototype by customers and usersduring the analysis phase. This approach hopes to avoid delaying the detection of analysis and design problems to the integration and testphase of development, where they are more expensive tofix. The developers create a prototype that exhibits theirunderstanding of customer requirements. The customersand users review the prototype for conformance to theirview of how the system should operate. The prototype isevolved until it becomes a dynamic operationalspecification of the actual requirements. This model has the highest loading early in thedevelopment cycle, since it involves very intense customerinvolvement during the early phases of development withcorrespondingly low levels of activity during test andintegration.
