Full Answer

A proof of concept, or POC, is a way to examine or demonstrate the usefulness of a product or idea. The POC outlines how the product or idea will operate in a real-world environment without the expenditure necessary for the full development.

A POC includes a number of descriptions: 

  • Prototype design: an example of the full product.
  •  
  • Equipment: the parts necessary to build the prototype.
  •  
  • Descriptions of the testing that will take place.
  •  
  • Defining how the testing will take place.
  •  
  • Execute testing.

In addition to outlining all the steps, the POC describes the outcomes of testing in detail and includes successful tests as well as tests that had to be modified. If the POC refers to a product, it may not be necessary to build a prototype, but instead becomes necessary to get a copy of the existing item for testing and development. If the POC is being written to bring a new concept or idea into a company, it should include a detailed description of how the particular product will enhance or benefit the company.

  • Q:

    How should investigative reports be written?

    A:

    Investigative reports begin with introductions, which often include factual information, followed by a background section with illustrations and diagrams if necessary, methods for data acquisition and their results and a summary or conclusion. As with other credible documents, investigative reports should provide a section of acknowledgments, supporting documentation and a section on recommendations. This is particularly true for law enforcement officers and other legal professionals who may use the evidence collected at trial.
