"Paper changes are cheap."
Gerald Weinberg

A prototype is a special type of model that “appears” to be working. It can “look” and/or “behave” similar to the target system. Prototypes are created for the purpose of assessment, demonstration, or experimentation. In application systems development, prototyping involves building models of some portion of a delivered system quickly and inexpensively to check functionality, performance or fit.

Prototypes can take many forms, from paper illustrations to online working models. The appropriate use of prototyping can greatly enhance the effectiveness of the application development process.
