Towards Identification and Recognition of Trace Associations in Software Requirements Traceability
In the field of software engineering, requirements traceability is becoming a dynamic area of research. Producing numerous artifacts is crucial activity to maintain and yield high quality software. These artifacts are created and generated throughout the lifetime of software development, and are highly interrelated where the impact of any change in either artifact imparts changes on all the relevant product outcomes. This paper focuses on the identification of inherent relationships that occur and became existent in the software requirements engineering activity due to which new and hidden traces among the artifacts including those to be self-created or generated at a later juncture can be discovered as a Post-RS1 activity.
