How are mockups usually used?

Artists and designers know that mockups are very helpful in their work. Actually a mockup is a scale or full-size model of a design or device. It can be used for various purposes: teaching, demonstration, design evaluation, promotion and many others. The best feature of the mockup is that it is a prototype, which provides part of system’s functionality. This allows to test the design on the early stage, get feedback from the users and fix all the bugs before they become a problem. Most often mockups are used in software development. They show the end user what the UI will look like avoiding the necessity to build the whole thing. Mockups are real time and effort savers. They can range from very simple hand drawn screen layouts to semi functional user interfaces developed with the help of professional software development tools. The significance of mockups is difficult to overestimate especially when the functions, being simulated demand considerable energy and money inputs.
