An industry survey of emerging prototyping methodologies
The literature indicates that although the phased traditional systems development approach continues to be used, prototyping techniques are becoming popular. Instead of a single prototyping methodology, however, studies suggest there are several, each with its unique processes and characteristics. These developments raise important questions: which specific methodologies are being used, to what extent are they being applied, and how important are they? A mail survey of the MIS managers in Fortune 1000 firms was conducted to attempt to answer these questions. Four separate methodologies are identified and investigated. Results indicate that over 60% of the respondent organizations are prototyping; all four methodologies are very popular and seen as important to the development of information systems. © 1990.
