(PP) units are production-ready units that are manufactured in low volume on a prototype supply chain. The PP units look like and work like the final product and have a complete software applications implemented.
Based on feedback from alpha testing of the Engineered Prototype units, update the industrial design, mechanical design, electronics design, or the product requirements document.
Perform a cost optimization, a design-for-manufacturing optimization, and a design-for-assembly optimization on the product.
Develop the complete application firmware source code for the product as well as documentation: firmware design note, firmware verification procedure, and firmware system architecture.
Send the Production Prototype (PP) filesets out for manufacturing. Manufacturing usually takes on the order of 2-3 weeks. After receipt of manufactured PP samples, perform bring-up and integration testing. Units are now ready for Beta testing.
Production Prototype (PP) units serve as the final prototype manufacturing run of your product.
