    • Sample input data
      • as similar to the data type and structure of the actual input data as possible
    • Complete input specifications
      • include all data file or structure information, field input format and position (this is usually accomplished by providing Q-Ref descriptive output, record descriptions from existing programs, or schema/subschema definitions)
    • Complete Processing specifications to include
      • any manipulation that must take place to convert input data to output specifications
      • selection criteria anything that limits which input records should be processed
