Understanding Customer Specs

I don't understand something in my customer's spec, what does it mean? by MintJulep

My customer's specification contains a requirement that the frabobble meet the requirements listed in Handel's Messiah.  What exactly does this mean?

When you don't understand something in a customer specification, there are a number of options available to you.

Guess:  Hey, maybe you'll guess right.  Or maybe not, and you'll waste a lot of time going down the wrong path, or maybe do something that just doesn't work, and get sued.

Ask a bunch of anonymous strangers on the internet:  Hey, maybe we'll guess right.  Or maybe not, and you'll waste a lot of time going down the wrong path, or maybe do something that just doesn't work, and get sued.

Ask your client for a written clarification.  Then you'll know.
