Traceability: A key to software success
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
From one year to another an intuitive feeling has grown stronger. That feeling tells us that poor traceability is the underlying reason for many of the problems that the software industry struggles with today. This thesis was carried out to see if this was true and if so investigate how traceability was related to the problems in today's software industry. In order to do this we have taken two different approaches. The first approach has been to try to establish if there exist support for this claim in existing literature. In the second approach we have tried to do the same thing by performing our own empirical study. Within this empirical study we have interviewed some project managers and some developers in order to find out which problems that are perceived by the software community as the most troublesome ones when it comes to software development. Finally we have created a conceptual framework for increased traceability and then investigated if whether or not this framework could provide a good foundation for tackling the problems identified in literature as well as the problems discovered within the empirical study.
