    54518 Imported via OAI, 7:29:01 5th Jul 2005 In this paper1, we investigate and discuss the underlying natureof the requirements traceability problem. Our work is based onempirical studies, involving over 100 practitioners, and anevaluation of current support. We introduce the distinctionbetween pre-requirements specification (pre-RS) traceabilityand post-requirements specification (post-RS) traceability, todemonstrate why an all-encompassing solution to the problem isunlikely, and to provide a framework through which tounderstand its multifaceted nature. We report how the majorityof the problems attributed to poor requirements traceability aredue to inadequate pre-RS traceability and show the fundamentalneed for improvements here. In the remainder of the paper, wepresent an analysis of the main barriers confronting suchimprovements in practice, identify relevant areas in whichadvances have been (or can be) made, and makerecommendations for research.
