A Proof of Concept (POC) is a small-scale project or experiment that is carried out to demonstrate the feasibility of a particular idea, concept, or technology.
A POC is usually conducted in the early stages of the product design process to test and validate the technical feasibility, viability, and potential benefits of a new idea or technology. It typically involves creating a basic working model or prototype that demonstrates how the concept or technology can be implemented and integrated into a larger system.
The goal of a POC is to provide evidence that a particular idea or technology can work as intended and can solve a real-world problem or address a specific need. It allows developers and designers to evaluate the technical feasibility of a project and to identify potential risks and challenges early on.
Once a POC is completed, the results are evaluated, and the decision is made on whether to proceed with the full-scale development of the product or software. If the POC is successful, it provides a strong foundation for further development, and if not, it can save time and resources by preventing the investment of further development efforts.
