Traceability Matrix Methodology
In the Traceability Matrix, each requirement, or group of requirements in the Business Requirement Document are mapped to the functional specifications relating to it.
The goal of a good Traceability Matrix is to ensure that all requirements are traceable to the functional specification, design documents, and test plan.
Steps in creating a matrix
- Create a Business Requirement Document (BRD
- Translate BRD into a functional specification (FSD)
- Create Internal and External Design Reports (IDR and EDR)
- Start Test Planning including mapping to requirements
