Software Prototyping

Prototype your idea for best results

Software Prototyping

Software Prototyping

Software prototyping is the concept of developing a prototype for a software application before actual development. Prototyping gives a complete idea of how the application will shape out, and how its interface will appear. Prototyping approach helps specifically in waterfall project methodology, as it helps deliver the solution much within the specified time frame with reduced costs.

The prototype gives an idea of the product, as it simulates a particular aspect of the product. The completed application will differ from the prototype. Prototype service is generally offered at the specification development stage to understand the solution, and visualize the application.

Why Prototype?

Software prototyping helps both the developer and client visualize the solution, so that they can formulize the solution, and develop the application faster. Prototyping can be non-functional and functional. Non-Functional prototypes are just screens with dummy data for visualization while functional prototypes are a limited feature version of the software which gives the look and feel of the intended solution.

Here’s why you should prototype

  • Helps identify the software solution that matches the requirement
  • With the ideal prototype you can understand if the solution matches the requirement specification
  • It helps understand the flexibility and scalability offered by the solution
  • It offers insight into the project dynamics
  • Mitigates the risks
  • Improves quality of development
  • Helps understand and include the missing features

There are different types of prototype solutions that are generally used:

  • Horizontal Prototype (Interface Prototype)
  • Vertical Prototype
  • Throwaway prototyping
  • Evolutionary prototyping
  • Incremental prototyping
  • Extreme prototyping
  • Prototyping at Semaphore
  • Software Design Prototyping
  • Software Development Prototyping
  • Software Requirement Prototyping
  • Software Feasibility Prototyping
  • Prototyping Process at Semaphore

Harnessing the Capabilities of Semaphore Software

Semaphore Software has a strong and experienced team for software prototyping. We offer prototypes along with the software requirement specification to help end client understand the solution, and know if it matches their need. Our methodology is aimed to reduce the development time, and offer quality software applications. We offer competitive edge to clients with best in class prototyping solutions.

If you need to understand the solution at an early stage, hire our prototyping solutions. Get in touch with us with your requirement.

Prototyping Process at Semaphore

Semaphore following the standard process of prototyping that involves the following steps:

  • Identification of Basic Requirement
  • Initial Prototype Development
  • Revise and Enhance
  • Review

Objectives and Benefits of Software Prototyping

Software prototypes can be used to achieve many objectives. Semaphore suggest its clients to go for software prototyping looking at the project dynamics for the following objectives and benefits:

  • Prototypes Saves Money
  • Prototypes Saves Time
  • Prototype is TWO WAY Insurance
    • Client can match it with Requirement Specification
    • Vendor can judge the future software
  • Mitigate Risks of Misunderstanding & Miscommunication
  • Improved Quality of Requirements
  • Identifying Missing Features
  • Get Valuable feedback early in the project
  • Get Insight on Project Timelines and Milestones
  • Prioritize Features (Vital, Essential and Desirable)
  • Use as a Tool to Attract Investors
  • Provide as a Proof of Concept
  • Increase User Involvement
  • Improved System Usability
