Because of rapidly changing technologies, requirements for the software systems are constantly changing. This requires a change in software design as well, as design should be traceable to the requirements. There is a strong need to deal with these changes in a systematic manner. For this purpose, proper decision making and change planning is required to effectively implement the change. Change impact analysis provides its services in this regard, by allowing the users' to assess the potential side effects of change and also helps the users' in identifying that what is needed to be modified to accomplish the change.
