How to avoid costly mistakes

Proof of Concept.

It is a prototype to test the idea and its functionality. It is experimental and it will involve making a test rig.

Testing functionality early will save you time and money in the long run.

Functional Prototype

It explores the functionality of the intended final product with initial consideration of shape

Concentrate on core requirements. Minimum viable Product (MPV), designing it just good enough. Don’t waste money on too many features at this stage.

Avoid making an appearance prototype before establishing that your concept function as you intended, A more cost-effective way to visualise a final version of your product is creating a photo realistic image using CAD modelling.
