Provides a comprehensive description of the practices and theories of software traceability across all phases of the software development cycle
A reference point for traceability research and practice
Addresses the topic of traceability in a detailed manner
Traceability supports numerous activities in the engineering of software systems. For example, pre-requirements traceability is used to demonstrate that a product meets the stakeholders’ stated requirements, or that it complies with a set of government regulations. Other forms of traceability are used to demonstrate the relationships between requirements and software artefacts such as design models, source code, and test cases.
Over the last 20 years, in order to overcome the significant challenges in creating, maintaining and using traceability, the research community has been actively addressing traceability issues through the following:
Exploring topics related to automating the traceability process
Developing strategies for achieving cost-effective traceability
Supporting the capture and evolution of traceability links
Visualizing traceability and advancing its effectiveness for end users
Developing traceability practices that apply across a wide range of domains
Divided into five sections, Traceability Strategy, Traceability Creation, Traceability Maintenance, Traceability Use and Traceability Challenges, Software and Systems Traceability provides a comprehensive reference for traceability theory, research and practice and presents an introduction to the concepts and theoretical foundations of traceability.
