Functional Requirements Specification


A comprehensive document, detailing what is required of an installation to meet the business needs of users. Such a document can run to considerable length and would normally be prepared by Analysts, who can speak the language of both business and IT; effectively, they act as interpreters between technical and non-technical areas.

As a basic principle, developments within commercial enterprises should be user-driven. The first step is to devise a 'Functional Specification', also known as the 'Functional Requirements Specification', ('FRS'). This leads naturally to the 'Technical Specification' and then, if necessary, to a 'Request For Proposal' ('RFP').
