Member Submitted
Summary:

Prototypes are meant to demonstrate the viability of a process or to elicit requirements, but do not result in a sustainable system. In general, prototypes should be built only as a demonstration and replaced with a robust application for the production environment. Developers should take it upon themselves to avoid the proliferation of prototype code and systems.
