I've had that chance before. Unfortunately, how it goes depends on your
programmers. Mine were quite willing to forget I existed and not invite me
to design meeting, keep me informed of changes, etc.

Work hard to stay inside the loop, including yelling loudly early if they
push you aside. On the other hand, if you are a full team member, work hard
to get the interface designed well and then the documentation becomes easy.
