Why Requirement Traceability Matrix is important for any Software Development/ Maintenance project?

 

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 Business.

·         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 pass.  

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.

Solution

To overcome the entire Problem we need Requirement Traceability matrix.

In Requirement Traceability matrix  

·         One Requirement will Map to N number of Test case

·         N number of Test case need to passed to covered that requirement  

Lots of Tool presents to maintain Requirement Traceability Matrix

1 HP - Quality Centre

2 VS2010- Microsoft Test Manager

3 Excel - (Manual Mapping)
