Products have become smarter. They have more requirements and interdependencies, and there are more of them than ever. As a result, the product development process has become a matter of managing complexity.
Traceability, which documents the life of a requirement, is one key tool to manage the complexity challenge. When traceability is carried out correctly, teams can accurately assess the impact of changes, track the full history of product development, keep everyone in sync and consistently improve the quality of the products being built—every project, every release. This paper looks at five tips that will help you produce the kind of traceability that helps manage the complexity of the product development process.
