Functional Specification

&Mine develop comprehensive Functional Specifications (Func Specs) and run version control over our functional specification documents for internal and external stakeholders. Functional specifications are built into our CRM system to ensure that tasks, timelines and sign-offs are also handled on a task by task requirements basis as well as an overarching document.

All projects at &Mine will have a functional specification irrespective if they are an active paid component we deliver for clients approval or simply part of our internal process (which are provided to clients via our CRM documentation and access).  We build functional specifications for all services, yes including communication and advertising tasks at &Mine, as all tasks are reviewed by more than a single resource and the majority of requirements are touched by a technical or data analyst at some point.

Functional Specifications are either exportable on-the-fly PDF documents from our CRM software or initial developed as part of early stage developments inside projects as stand alone high level requirements until they require programming or technical resources.

User Interface designs, Wireframes, Low and High Fidelity Wireframes and /or Functional Prototypes are delivered as linked aspects of the Functional Specifications to confirm deliverables for development before coding begins.

Typically a functional specification for a software build is 10-20% of the project budget. This allows us to pre-plan functional requirements and met user and stakeholder expectations. The func spec also ensures we can be objective in the design of the system and focus on key market requirements, phase in future opportunities and deliver ideal outcomes for our clients software and digital web projects.

Our approach alongside best practice is to facilitate efficiency and build in robust commercial outcomes using lean methodologies to maximise investment returns. We are aggressive in weeding out unnecessary or minority aspects which will over burden projects, often wasting large percentages of time on unnecessary functionality that has little or nothing to do with a projects commercial viability and success.

Part of our core end-to-end processes, formal Functional Specifications (or Func Specs) are a mandatory part of all mid-size to large enterprise developments at &Mine.

&Mine Laboratory

&Mine team is a melting pot of technology and creative minds. Each year, we slice a few percent of our bandwidth to develop our own commercial projects. For example, we have developed a prototype Posture Detector with the help of Melbourne University's Engineering Department that will send signals to your smartphone and vibrate if your posture is poor. We are also improving our suite of cloud based software applications like Meet&Mine, our Networking Software. During its first year gathering data, it referred over half a million dollars of real business for a small Melbourne network group. If you’d like to know more about our laboratory projects and how you can get involved in capital raising, marketing or support, simply contact us.
