Requirements Traceability Measured & Benchmarked for the First Time
The first large scale, empirical research to confirm higher levels of traceability correlate to cycle time and quality improvements
Jama Software, the leading requirements management solution provider, has released the Requirements Traceability Benchmark – the first-ever large-scale, empirical study to measure Traceability Scores™ and the impact different levels of requirement traceability have on quality and cycle times. The benchmark dataset includes over 40,000 projects spanning numerous industries. Requirements traceability across the entire systems development lifecycle is a core tenant of the systems engineering discipline and underpins industry standards to ensure higher quality, faster cycle times, and less costly rework.
“Process improvement requires measurement,” said Marc Osofsky, Jama Software’s CEO. “The engineering process needs to catch up to other business functions in terms of process measurement. Traceability Scores now provide a great way for companies to baseline current performance and measure improvement over time.”
