Rapid prototyping is examined from three points of view: management, rapid analysis, and design. A rapid prototyping approach is presented for end-user requirements of large, data-intensive, command and control (C/sup 2/); command, control, communications and intelligence (C/sup 3/I); and command and control information systems (CCIS). It is noted that participatory management, highly motivated personnel, thorough knowledge of the targeted system's operations, sound prototyping methodology, appropriate tools, and innovative techniques used by an integrated team allow for severe schedule constraints and provide the edge for fast implementation. Modified structured methods and further innovations allow a rapid prototype cycle. Experience gained and examples are cited to illustrate the ideas and methods used in successful C/sup 3/I and CCIS prototypes. The authors discuss the compressed usage of known methods and introduce an innovative design method for the rapid development of operational threads as an integrating design technique to quickly assemble knowledge of disparate design views and disciplines under severe prototyping schedule constraints.<>
