Hello all.

How are you doing?

I have thought about the idea for a while and haven't shared it with
anyone. We can build a simple wizard which functions as a tool for
creating, sharing and collaborating Software Requirements Specification.
The reason for having such a tool is that the spec is usually the result
of the collaborative work of a group of technical and non-technical

This tool will definitely help set a standard format as well as
components of the spec. Therefore, the standards reduce a lot of
miscommunication among those people. In addition, they help avoid wordy
specs that make the technical people a lot of non-sense feelings.

I guess Microsoft has some software called project manager which just
manages the project as a whole regarding goals, purposes, deadlines and
responsibilities. A spec requires a lot more information to be organized
and understood.

How does that sound to all of you? Brad: I do not know if you have any
experiences in software development, so I appologize if this does not
make sense to you. If you need any additional info, we call talk as a
group in class today.
