Abstract

In the paper a point of view on the prototyping activity in the engineering design process is provided. The discussion is focused on early prototypes since they play a key role in determining the rejection or approval of an idea. What is the specific design dimension the prototype should render according to the interested audience? What is the right prototyping technique to use? The authors answer to these questions combining the insights derived by their experience on virtual prototyping and the ones coming from the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) community.
