Feature Sets

Feature Sets Provides an overview of features to be executed, including assumptions such as number of pages, source material, level of design or development involvement, and whether images, workflows, or wireframes are required.
Answers the following questions:

  • How should features be grouped together?
  • Which features should be developed and implemented at which times?
 
Provides the following benefits:

  • Documents early understanding of site features for approval to go forward with subsequent design
  • Provides a clearer picture of which features are appropriate to address now and which should be added later

A feature set is simply a table of contents for the individual feature descriptions. Much like a test suite, organizing the feature set by priority, functional area, actor, business object, or release can help identify missing, extra, or poorly motivated features early.
