Technical Specification Writing Class: In many fields, a requirement specification document is a common early part of the engineering design and product development processes.

A technical specification is a document that defines a set of requirements that a product or assembly must meet or exceed. Specifications are used when a contract for technical products or services is issued. The technical specification defines the requirements to fulfill the contract.

Most experts agree that specification writing is a critical stage to do before you start your development progress, especially when developing a web or mobile project. Without it, most developers cannot get a clear picture and determine the single definition of what the project they are yet to create should look like from the perspective of programming.

Common steps in technical specification writing include:

  1. Determining requirements.
  2. Deciding if the specification will be open or closed: An open specification describes required performances. A closed specification describes performances as well as tools, technologies or sub-assemblies that must be used.
  3. Listing all requirements that must be met by the product or assembly being specified: Use the word “shall” to define a requirement. Requirements expressed as “shall” must be fully and properly met. These include matters such as product dimensions, specifying the life for a product, placing tolerances on the performance of a product, etc.

The importance of writing a technical specification can’t be over stressed. In more than 90 percent of cases of project development stages, it is a prerequisite before advancing to the actual assembling phase.

Additionally, the technical specification shortens the development and, in the long run, makes the development cheaper. It also provides a canvas to make it faster to work on the layout.

A specification document also improves the scalability of working since the process is already described and new developers understand the requirements without stress. Entire teams should be able to work on a large project without confusion.

Another benefit: It offers developers with a precisely defined contingency plan. This means the chances of failure are minimized since the developer and stakeholders know the requirements and therefore are always working within the plan.
