Traceability Matrix

(Alias: Traceability Analysis)

A tool for analysing and demonstrating traceability between a work product and its specification.

A blank column (e.g. Design Element 3) indicates that an element does not satisfy a user requirement. The existance of the offending element may therefore be due to "gold plating" (adding "neat" features to a product without a request from a customer). A blank row (e.g. Requirement 2) indicates that a user requirement has not been satisfied by the design solution. The design may therefore be incomplete.

Given the complexity of most software products, traceability matrices are produced with automated tools such as:
