Developing a product includes several steps that will get you to your finished product. In the steps below I have listed a description of the steps and put in an example based on creating lemonade as a new product.


Prototype (week 1 of development):
Extra practice for week one of development is to create a prototype of your product.
When creating a product the first thing you should do is create a prototype, which is a three-dimensional version of your idea. A prototype allows you to test out your design, helps you describe your product, and encourages others to believe in your idea. Creating a prototype is a great way to bring your product to life. There are no rules in creating it so you can experiment with any materials that you have in your house. You can use clay, socks, glue, empty milk containers, you name it. If creating an app you can draw out the way that you would like for your app to function.

(Ex. Get together all of your ingredients for your lemonade and make it)


Testing (week 2 of development):

Extra practice for week two of development is to test your product and find ways to make it better.

After creating your prototype the next thing you need to do is test it. See if what you have works the way that you want it to work, and if not identify the mistakes and find ways to make it better. If creating an app at this stage you will create a mobile map. A mobile map is a visual of a phone with your design and shows all of the screens that you would see as you go through your app. You should be able to press the buttons on the phone and visually see what you would expect to show up on the screen next.

(Ex. Taste your lemonade and see if it needs more lemons, sugar, or water)
Beta Development (week 3 of development):


Beta Development (week 3 of development):

Extra practice for week three will be to add all of your corrections to your original product

The Beta part of development is when you get your product as close to the finished product as possible. You put together all of your findings from your testing stage and add them to your original prototype.
(Ex. You saw that your lemonade needed more sugar, so you add that to your recipe and make a new lemonade)

Beta Testing (week 4 of development):
Extra practice for week four is to allow other people to test your product and ask them for their opinions on how your product is working.
Beta testing is the second stage of testing for you product. During this stage you allow others to try your product out and see what they thing about it. This testing will lead you to your finished product.
(Ex. Have your friends and family come over and try your lemonade out. Ask them if there’s anything that they think you can add or take out. Collect any feedback from them that you can)
Finished Product (week 5 of development):
Extra practice for this week is to add all of your findings from your Beta testing to your product and create your final version.
Your finished product should include all of your feedback that you’ve received from your testing’s.
