Part 1 – Prototype Development Series: Project initiation

Process of Product Concept Brainstorming

This post will be a guide to some, and for some this will give insights on how we develop a prototype within our team for any product we might develop. For the ease of convenience here on this series of blog posts will be called as PrDS (Prototype Development Series). So this blog post is PrDS Part 1. PrDS Part 2 will walk you through the 1 – 3 steps introduced bellow.

The prototype concept that we are going to develop is a home groceries list taking mobile application for iOS platform, which will be useful for your personal use. Initially we target for Phones device category only. So without further ado, following are the steps that we’d follow within the first iteration which may take 1-2 days (depending on the project complexity and also the scope of the requirements). Assume at this stage, we have already gathered the requirements up to some level where we can grasp the software solution we have to develop. We call following process as Project Kickstart Process, which let us develop an application which let an opportunity for both parties us and our client to play around, experiment and learn and also then initiate actual development of the software solution. Remember this is not only for mobile apps, but this Project Kickstart Process is valid even for web app related projects too. By going through the following process our development team and also the client can have a better understanding about the required software solution including costing.

Project Kickstart Process

  1. Come up with a minimal UI with hand drawn sketches
  2. Make wireframes out of the sketches using draw.io app, play with the wireframes and fine tune them the user-workflow
  3. Make UI mockups using Sketch App, based on the finalized wireframes
    • Does client require us to develop a prototype or the MVP (minimal viable product)?
  4. Decide the future of the prototype or the MVP:
    1. Is this a throw away prototype? The technology we are going to use shouldn’t play a big role then.
    2. If it’s not a throw away prototype what technology should we use to build it?
    3. How faster we should be able to build it?
  5. Start developing the prototype.
  6. Communicate with related stakeholders & get feedback and decide if we could move to another iteration of the prototype or should we move directly to build the MVP. (which we cannot demonstrate for this introductory project)

Await for our next post to see our results for the 1, 2, 3 steps. Please leave your thoughts about our project brainstorming process, which is Project Kickstart Process which we just described. And don’t forget to read the follow up post of this, which is PrDS Part 2.
