The "objective of a proof of technology is to determine the solution to some technical problem, such as how two systems might be integrated or that a certain throughput can be achieved with a given configuration."[1]

Prototypes[edit]

Def.

  1. "[a]n original object or form which is a basis for other objects, forms, or for its models and generalizations",[2]
  2. "[a]n early sample or model built to test a concept or process",[2] or
  3. "[a]n instance of a category or a concept that combines its most representative attributes"[2] is called a prototype.

A "proof-of-technology prototype ... typically implements one critical scenario to exercise or stress the highest-priority requirements."[3]

Field tests[edit]

Def. to "test something using the conditions that it was designed to operate under, especially out in the real world instead of in a laboratory or workshop"[4] is called "field-test", or a field test.

A "proof-of-technology test demonstrates the system can be used"[5].

Performances[edit]

"The strongest proof of technology performance is based on consistency among multiple lines of evidence, all pointing to similar levels of risk reduction."[6]

Hypotheses[edit]
