What is Traceability?

Traceability has been defined by Gotel et al, as "the ability to follow the life of a requirement in both a forward and backward direction"[1].

Jarke et al identified four types of traceability that they referred to as (i) backwards from requirements, (ii) forwards to requirements, (iii) backwards to requirements, and (iv) forward from requirements.
