Documenting a undocumented system

By lunateth ·
I have taken on a project that has for the most part been built, but it is buggy and has no requirements, scope, or technical specification docs. In your experience, what is the best way to go about building a specification from an existing system, all while sorting out bugs?

Don't do it!

by specification I'm assuming you mean a requirements specification rather than some form of technical/design specification. The fact that there are no requiremenents implies either poor communication with the project sponsors or non existent project sponsors. Without buy-in from this group of people the project is going nowhere and you are on a very slippery slope. Believe me, I've been there, done that, and have the T-Shirt!
