Proof of Concept
Proof of Concepts "POC" generates knowledge about the product’s design, performance, production requirements, and preliminary production costs. It allows you to test your idea at lower cost and in a shorter time period. POC demonstrates design and functional ideas that can be used in prototypes or in the final product. POC provides reality checks and risk management tool.
A successful POC is used in prototype or the production version of the software. An unsuccessful one, give you valuable feedback so that you can change your design or project direction early on
