Prototype, Forms Design, System Development, and Forms
Prototypes are often used to evaluate the feasibility of doing a full design of a new mechanism. A prototype of an electronic form system is presented with a discussion of prototypes. The mechanism being explored is a high level form definition mechanism based on abstract data types in programming languages. The prototype provided better understanding of implementation and facilities of a form definition language. Statements of prototype objectives assisted in developing a successful prototype.

Hewlett-Packard's (HP) Printed Circuit Layout department at Lake Stevens Division has been blamed for delaying HP's time to market. Lake Stevens makes printed circuit assembly prototypes for HP's various products. It has been found that bottlenecks occur since prototyping is done late during the product development process and is outside the control of the project team. However, Lake Stevens managers decided to focus on business, technical and people issues to speed up the prototyping process. They also implemented concurrent engineering and used faster tools.

A study, which describes the user, interfaces for the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) web site, which evolved; with the larger organizational interface and how this co-evolution has influenced the institution itself is presented. Interviews with the BLS staff and transaction log analysis are the foci in this analysis that also included user information-seeking studies and user interface prototyping and testing.
