Product Specification

Project specifications are an essential part of any web site. A project specification is a lot like a blueprint for building a home. It is a plan created in writing that should be uniformly understandable by all people involved in the project. You wouldn’t build a home without a blueprint would you? Of course you wouldn’t.

Businesses are undergoing a constant transition driven by technological advancement, increasing customer expectation and increasing competition. Product management teams have to deliver innovation in this ever changing landscape.

In a systematic approach, product designers conceptualize and evaluate ideas, turning them into tangible inventions and products. The product designer’s role is to combine art, science, and technology to create new products that other people can use. Their evolving role has been facilitated by digital tools that now allow designers to communicate, visualize, analyze and actually produce tangible ideas in a way that would have taken greater manpower in the past.

A Design or Product Specification describes the features of the solutions for the Requirement Specification. Sometimes the term specification is here used in connection with a data sheet (or spec sheet). This may be confusing. A data sheet describes the technical characteristics of an item or product as designed and/or produced. It can be published by a manufacturer to help people choose products or to help use the products. A data sheet is not a technical specification as described in this article.
