Requirements Traceability Overview
This chapter is all about giving you a requirements traceability overview, and showing you the value that it has in your product development process.
Given the complexity of products today, it takes multiple team members to weigh in on key decisions. And the number of decision points are only growing as products get more complex, making it even tougher to adequately weigh all the options and trace their impacts.
That’s why requirements traceability is key to reducing risk in the development process and the successful delivery of quality products and software.
