What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Risks and challenges

For the past 2 years, we have been testing the MultiTaskR prototypes in various conditions, holding various gear. We know the top quality & durability of our product. But we are not newcomers to the manufacturing industry and have seen the up’s & downs and know that finding the right supplier who not only meets our quality requirements, but also meets our production schedule. With our experience, we were able to obtain quotes and supply fulfillment time frames from several large known manufacturers that are both ISO 9001 & AS9100 certified, ready to begin production of our inventory when we give the go ahead. But sometimes production schedules can be delayed for circumstances out of our control. For instance, after a prototype has been made and tested and it's ready to go, then it goes to a first run sample. If the sample comes back with tolerance variations out of our requirements, it goes back to rework. This can delay the fulfillment process. Needless to say, we want the first run sample to be done exactly to our specifications the first time, but sometimes that doesn’t happen. Time fixes this issue, but it also can cause shipment delays to the customer. When quoting the approximate ship date to our valuable donors we have padded the date to allow for possible hiccups. We feel quoting an exact ship date is our biggest challenge due to the unknowns.
