Requirements Change Impact Analysis Using Event Based Traceability

R. P. Gohil, Swapan Bhattacharya, and Ravirajsinh Chauhan
Abstract—The growing complexities of software and the demand for shorter time to market are two important challenges that today’s IT industry faces. These challenges demand the increase of both productivity and quality of software. Modelling traceability in software development provides promising techniques for these challenges. Since real software project undergoes change during the whole life cycle of software, managing changes to a software system is critical to the success of the system. To handle the process of change management manually is very tedious work for large projects. So, automation of this process using models is the fundamental drive in the software development life-cycle, allowing for reduced maintenance and development time. Changing customer needs and computer technology are the driving factors influencing software evolution. There is a need to assess the impact of these changes on existing software systems. Requirement specification is gaining increasing attention as a critical phase of software systems development process. In particular for larger systems, it quickly becomes difficult to comprehend what impact a requirement change might have on the overall system or parts of the system. Thus, the development of techniques and tools to support the evolution of requirement specifications becomes an important issue.

Index Terms—Change events, change impact analysis, dependency graph, requirements management.
