Software specifications, or Software Requirements Specifications, are the descriptions of the software system being developed. It is an important piece of documentation that lays out the requirements of the software, both the functional and non-functional ones. It will also typically include a set of “use-cases” which delineate the specific user interactions which the software in question aims to provide. At The Write Direction, our team includes writers with academic and professional experience in software development.
The Importance of Writing Software Specifications
Your company's software specifications are an important component of the basis for your agreement between your customers, your contractors, and/or suppliers on what the software in question is designed to do, as well as what it is not designed to do. They are essential for:
- Providing in-depth and critical assessments of the software requirements
- A prerequisite for the design phase of the project
- An important step a business must take in order to mitigate the necessity or potential for costly redesign and rework
Having an experienced technical writer handling your software specifications documentation provides you with an opportunity to:
- Capitalize on their superior communication skills
- Leverage them to make sure that all of the necessary information and requirements have been thoroughly explored, analyzed, and laid out before a project begins
- Gain the best foresight possible to stay on track, on budget and on schedule.
