The market requirements document ( MRD ) describe the opportunity or the

anything that the other distribution have to offer or are out there on
the market, what advantages it will bring him etc.
The product requirements document ( PRD ) describe a product that
addresses that opportunity essentially how the output from the
workstation WG will proved that added functionality.
So the first step in the process is to complete the MRD the second step
is to complete the PRD and I'm not aware of anyone in the marketing
community writing MRD for any of the WG's ( or the WG's themselves
coming up with one ) and these goes hand in hand.
For this process to effectively work as advertised both steps need to be
complete not just the half of it.
I don't think anybody has advertised a specific process or methodology
that we are following, and I suggest not to get too hung up on product
management terminology. Throwing around acronyms is stupid, anyway. We
could just talk about 'defining the product'.
