What is Traceability in Software Development
In software development lifecycle it refers often to requirements traceability. But that’s not all.
Generally speaking, traceability is the ability to follow the life of a requirement (a customer need, a user story…) both forwards and backwards. It involves defining requirements, capturing those requirements, and following links between requirements and other artifacts such as tasks, tests and defects as well as other work items as source code or deliveries.
