    Hello,

    Functional Specification (FS) is formal document used to describe in detail functionality/business requirement to developers.

    The benefits of a functional specification can be summarised by the following points:

    - easier product development

    - the FS will be approved by a client, to give confidence that the

    product development is on the right track

    - easy to interpret, minimise communication problems and misunderstanding

    - the document is written in a human language, it is easier to communicate design ideas and

    change a few paragraphs rather than deciphering a massive amount of code.

    - easier to find alternative solutions

    - if the FS is available it is easier to allocate resources

    - introduces an element of discipline in the software development process

    - FS can be used for validation purposes, i.e. for checking whether the product really

    implements the features described in the FS

    - form the basis for testing and verification

    Thanks & Regards,
