Tech/Engineering
French term or phrase: dossier de définition
context: breakdown of production schedule for a construction project
under the column "nature des délais," the phrase appears:
"établissement du dossier de définition" as a precondition for proceeding to the next phase of the project.
is this something like producing manufacturing papers or records?
thanks in advance

This was more helpful than 'specifications' because 'fiche technique' had to be translated as specification sheet. Thanks to both for your answers though.

specifications


Explanation:
The term "specifications" can be used both for papers/records, as well as for deadlines, machine specs etc. It is a broad term - I suspect that they want all aspects of the project to be defined in writing before proceeding to the next stage.
