The mission and goal of Limspec Wiki is to provide the laboratoty and informatics communities an organized and comprehensive collection of requirements and specifications for software systems that could potentially be used in the laboratory environment. This wiki represents the next iteration of Limspec, which was originally introduced by the Laboratory Informatics Institute in 2007. Then it was described as a tool "to help you select an open source application, build your own system or create an RFP/RFQ/RFI to entertain bids to supply your lab with a laboratory information management system." Today, Limspec is able to do those things and more, looking at the requirements of other systems that may be used in the laboratory, including scientific data management systems (SDMS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications.
