Traceability 101 for Business Managers & Stakeholders

When a single product has thousands of requirements and interdependencies, the process of defining, engineering, and managing them grows exponentially more complicated, resulting in a messy traceability trail. Traceability by spreadsheet works, but only if all requirements are equal and if your team, project and scope are so small that you’re the only person who needs to know how the product you’re building is impacted.

In this whitepaper, we cover:

  • The limitations and risks of using spreadsheets for traceability
  • Where a trace matrix falls short
  • The importance of having Live Traceability™ through siloed development, test, and risk activities
