Prototyping is a useful approach to project quality management because prototyping often addresses the expectations—and the vision—that customers often have of the deliverable, but may not have expressed in requirements and specifications. Prototyping is the process of demonstrating an early model of the deliverable and how it will work without having made major investments in its design and development.

Prototyping can be accomplished through electronic and visual representations, computer screens, models of products, and graphics. Prototyping is scheduled into a typical project as an early summary task with subtasks addressing prototype development, presentation, testing, and approval. Eventually, a prototype must be approved by the customer before proceeding, thus it is a key milestone that should be scheduled into the project.
