Proof of Concept studies:
What is a Feasibility Study?
... to determine whether or not a process, design, procedure, or plan can be successfully accomplished in the required time frame, given a pre-determined set of resources including: Money, Computing resources and Personnel.
A feasibility study often involves a "proof-of-concept" in the development of a prototype application to test a premise or concept. A feasibility study or "pilot project" is a cost-reduction strategy.
Prototyping and Design:
The purpose of a prototype is to allow users of the software to evaluate proposals for the design of the eventual product by actually trying them out, rather than having to interpret and evaluate a design based on "words"... seeing is believing.
Evolutionary prototyping is an approach to system development where an initial "mock-up" or prototype is produced and refined through a number of stages to achieve a final system. The objective of evolutionary prototyping is to deliver a working system.
Not only is the system more likely to meet user requirements after evolutionary prototyping, users are more likely to commit to the use of the system because of their involvement and knowing that it addresses their needs.
Designers and implementers get feedback from users early in the project and needs are resolved during the development process, not after.
Prototyping provides the software engineers insight into the accuracy of initial project estimates and whether the deadlines and milestones proposed can be met successfully.
