Six Reasons to Invest in Product Prototypes Early and Often

Few things are more exciting to manufacturers than new product ideas. New designs, engineering challenges and the ability to deliver a new user experience are all rewarding hallmarks of innovation. However, the road that separates conceptualization and commercialization is riddled with tight turns and obstacles. Fast, efficient prototyping is one of the best ways to prepare yourself for the journey.

Instead of being considered just one of many steps towards realizing a particular market goal, consider prototyping a unique asset that provides benefits no other part of the innovation process can. Companies that develop prototypes
