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".
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.
