Prototype Manufacturing Types
Proof-of-Principle Prototype serves to verify some key functional aspects of the intended design but usually does not have all the functionality of the final product.
Working Prototype represents all or nearly all of the functionality of the final product.
Visual Prototype represents the size and appearance, but not the functionality, of the intended design. A Form Study Prototype is a preliminary type of visual prototype in which the geometric features of a design are emphasized, with less concern for color, texture, or other aspects of the final appearance.
User Experience Prototype represents enough of the appearance and function of the product that it can be used for user research.
Functional Prototype captures both function and appearance of the intended design, though it may be created with different techniques and even different scale from final design.
Paper Prototype is a printed or hand-drawn representation of the user interface of a software product. Such prototypes are commonly used for early testing of a software design, and can be part of a software walkthrough to confirm design decisions before more costly levels of design effort are expended.
