abstract

  • Traceability is defined in the area of Software Engineering as the capability to track the evolution and transformation of requirements into implementation components. However, the current state of the art in traceability does not account for many information items that are relevant for the engineering process, especially those created before requirements arise. Appropriately tracing these information items and the underlying knowledge they contain could be most useful for other organizational or engineering processes. In this work we describe a reference model that establishes a set of definitions, processes and models which allow a proper management of traceability and further uses of it, in a wider context than the one related to software development.
