Requirement Traceability matrix tells as the test coverage of test case
before Going to Next phase of testing or before GO live of the software .
In Software Testing Life cycle
First of all Requirement will be gather from the
Second on the basis of requirements test case
will be created
Third Test case will be executed on build
provided by developer
Fourth defect will be raised for failed test .
Fifth and Final go will be give when all test
But still how can we trust on tester / testing team that all
requirements are covered?
A tester is a human being they will may be miss the
requirement as Developer miss the requirement and tester tested the finished
product and raised a defects.
To overcome the entire Problem we need Requirement Traceability
In Requirement Traceability matrix
One Requirement will Map to N number of Test
N number of Test case need to passed to covered
Lots of Tool presents to maintain Requirement Traceability
