Sometimes it is necessary to experimentally verify that a design approach is practical - to avoid a costly development launch only to find there is a flaw in the method.
Keys to prototyping: it always takes more than one go at prototype manufacture to make a succesful product; FF (fail fast) is usually cheaper and quicker than RFT (right first time - myth); manufacture proper PCBs - it is cheap these days
Prototype to production - an oft overlooked phase, but the right suppliers, a good quality plan, and a thorough approach to design for manufacturing does much to smooth the proceess
Testing a control sample of clients ensures satisfaction for the many when the floodgates open
There are always reasons for design resource to be available even when a product has been sold for years.
