A well-written specification will meet project requirements and keep costs under control. A poorly written specification can lead to confusion, extra costs and an installation that doesn't meet the needs of the client. This webinar will explain the importance of cabling infrastructure project specifications: how they're written, structured and responded to.
In this session, the nuances of language will be very important. We will review the differences between prescriptive and descriptive, as well as normative and informative, language. We will also compare and contrast micro and macro guidance, as well as the benefits and limitations of system vs. component design.
In addition, you'll learn about the use of "equivalence" from performance, functional and features standpoints. This will lead into a discussion on product substitutions, alternatives and value engineering.
