I noticed that there were very few mentions and little
elaboration on output/reports. Is this not a consideration
with this project? Almost all of the larger projects I've
worked on have core requirements in this area (whether in
written or electronic form).
in reply to Starting a Large Project
In the few instances where I've made design mistakes, they
usually stemmed from the fact that I failed to examine the
required output/reports closely enough or made wrong
assumptions (though usually valid) based on experience.
Recently I was given an example (publication) to work from
and found out later in development that they had changed
their example substantially without telling me. Thus the
need for constant design/programmer/customer feedback
throughout the life cycle of the project.
