Guide to Specification Writing

This guide is a collection of short articles written by an experienced U.S. Government engineer to an audience of fellow engineers. The intent is to help both newcomers to the field and those who sometimes prepare informal specifications, but don't prepare them often enough to maintain the high levels of knowledge and skill they really need to do the job right. Use this guide as a general introduction to the principles that apply to specification writing.
