Knowledge is an asset worth protecting
If knowledge is an asset and assets need to be managed, then knowledge management is a necessary discipline.
Internal documentation allows your project groups to move forward with a “single version of the truth” and the resulting confidence increases the productivity of your team.
- Technical requirements
- Design documents
- Conceptual illustrations
- Electronic document filing
- Technical specifications
- Document version control
- Relational databases
- Electronic approval processes
- Flow diagrams
- Knowledge management
- Process documentation
The continued flow of accurate information enables managers to assess the real status of projects, implement and direct development, and assign tasks more efficiently.
Product development often deals with information while ideas are still in motion. As your products or services evolve, internal communication becomes increasingly vital. Document management ensures that information is accessible as required by each member of your team.
Technical specifications allow all project groups to benefit from a unified set of requirements rather than work in isolation, reducing the chances that work will be duplicated.
Detailed project documentation and a proper document control can significantly reduce the dangers associated with lost data, resource re-allocation and unexpected events.
Information about your product or system supports training efforts and allows users to get started immediately. This yields the quickest return whether you are implementing a new system for internal staff or providing solutions for external customers.
In addition to increasing product reliability and improving technical support, requirement documents promote comprehensive and accurate end user documentation.
Long Term Benefits
The review process inherent in the compilation of technical documents encourages the discovery of serious flaws earlier in the project where modifications incur the least cost.
Technical documentation can be used as a resource for iterative development projects by supplying your team with evolving methodologies.
By providing defined goals and a clear, repeatable process, the process of creating technical documentation helps your team predict results, conduct more effective and efficient testing, and develop a personal stake in the results.
Internal technical documentation ensures continuous improvement by recording and resolving immediate problems, by considering the need for long term corrective actions on underlying causes and by monitoring the effectiveness of changes.
Technical requirement documentation shows a strong commitment to quality at all stages of the development process and we believe quality remains the most powerful marketing tool.
