Evolutionary Prototyping
Evolutionary prototyping is an approach to system development where an initial prototype is produced and refined through a number of stages to the final system. Evolutionary prototyping is a life-cycle model in which the system is developed in increments so that it can readily be modified in response to end-user and customer feedback. The objective of evolutionary prototyping is to deliver a working system to end-users. The development starts with those requirements which are best understood.

Evolutionary prototyping should be used for systems where the specification cannot be developed in advance e.g. AI systems and user interface systems. These types of systems are based on techniques which allow rapid system iterations. Verification is impossible as there is no specification. Validation means demonstrating the adequacy of the system.
Evolutionary prototyping modelAdvantages of Evolutionary prototyping

  • Rapid delivery and deployment of the system:- Some time rapid delivery is more important than functionality or long-term software maintainability
  • User engagement with the system
  • Ability to address risk early in the project
  • Mutual flow of specification, design and implementation
  • Series of increments developed in the system are delivered to the customer

Problems of Evolutionary prototyping

  • Specialist skills are required which may not be available in all development teams
  • Unrealistic schedule and budget expectations
  • Inefficient use of prototyping
  • Unrealistic system performance expectations and poor design
  • Continual change tends to corrupt system structure so long-term maintenance is expensive
