The Technical Requirements Specification (TRS) in Web Projects
By Katy Whitton
The Technical Requirements Specification (TRS – Also known as a Functional Requirements Specification) scopes out all aspects of the project, from what platforms the website will run on, whether users have to have cookies enabled, down to databases, site and database architecture and testing methods.
Basically, anything that’s not in the TRS isn’t in the web project.
The advantages of this are:
- You don’t do unnecessary work outside the scope of the project.
- You know what you have to design and build for.
- If anything needs to be changed it’ll cost the client.
