Innovation requires methodologies that enable the continuous development of effective and context-relevant solutions. Thus, the frequent comparison of development goals and actual user needs is of crucial importance. Prototyping is a widely used tool for User Integration that supports the mutual process of understanding between designer and user. Yet, this usage of nonverbal communication in the course of the process is ambiguous and brings along its specific challenges for the designer. An enhanced system description of the prototyping process seems necessary to provide the developer with well-founded and comprehensible guidelines. Therefore, the present work analyses the similarities and differences of disturbance variables the designer may encounter in different prototyping processes.

Keywords: prototyping, user integration, communication gap, design theory, cybernetics
