A survey of traceability in requirements engineering and model-driven development

  title={A survey of traceability in requirements engineering and model-driven development},
  author={Stefan Winkler and Jens von Pilgrim},
  journal={Software & Systems Modeling},
Traceability—the ability to follow the life of software artifacts—is a topic of great interest to software developers in general, and to requirements engineers and model-driven developers in particular. This article aims to bring those stakeholders together by providing an overview of the current state of traceability research and practice in both areas.
