Product Specification Document

A product specification document is like a blueprint which is used to explain what the client needs from a product or system so that the programmers know what they are supposed to design at a particular point of time. The document also mentions all the risks and problems related to the design of the product along with the specifications. The document is created after the company has discussions with the client about what he wants and thus the product specification document helps to put into record what the developer is supposed to do. It must state in clear technical terms the different functions and behavior of the system in order to save time and money.
