Confused project management terminology: Issue, Off-specification, and Change Request

Issue: A problem that needs either resolution or attention by the project manager.

Off-specification: A project product which has not or forecast-ed not to be delivered as originally base-lined.

Change Request: It is a request for a change to a product from its base-lined form.

For example (Producing a budget laptop):

Issue: Processor specified is no longer in production.

Off-specification: Processor in the final laptop product over-heat.

Change Request: Senior User request a higher frequency processor for the laptop.

N.B. This is within the context for PRINCE2 terminology
