The PoC is based on a smart target, and a budget framework, as well as a schedule. Success factors help evaluate the outcome. "Non-targets" reduce the scope to the key elements. This way, costs and the occurrence of risks become more calculable and the framework for the PoC can be clearly defined.
For verification of the possible applications, use cases or criteria catalogs are used. The architecture and solution approach are documented for further levels of implementation. In order to make a final assessment of the project, the result of the PoC will be considered in connection with the objectives. This provides the opportunity to reflect on initial skepticism and to initiate further, controlled steps.
