When we talk about traceability, we refer to the set of procedures through which we can follow the evolution of a project at each stage it goes through. Therefore, we can say that the traceability of a project is an essential aspect in any process, since it allows us to have a vision of what is happening, both in general and in each specific activity.
An example of traceability in packaging would be the procedures that allow us to know its history, in which phase of the chain it is (design, production, labeling, …), what is the next step to be taken, and everything related to each specific task. In order to have everything registered and to be able to follow up, a traceability table is used.
The traceability matrix of a project is a table that allows you to relate the requirements of your project with the objectives to be achieved, indicating the tasks to be performed to achieve them. Thus, before starting each project, each specific requirement is recorded so that you can later check if they are being met.
This tool, also called requirements or requirements traceability table, allows you, therefore, to have a planning of your work, key in achieving your goals. Without proper planning, it will be difficult to achieve success. Especially in projects with many requirements.
Thanks to project traceability software, you will be able to align requirements and objectives, identifying when a goal is achieved by each requirement. This table will make it easy for you to see which requirements deliver the best results and which ones delay projects. Identifying where the problem lies will be key to knowing where to put your efforts. Solving these aspects will, among other things, reduce the time-to-market of your projects.
An example of a project requirements traceability matrix could be the following:
Project traceability allows tracking the stages and scope, to see where a change is needed and to evaluate the result of each requirement and the modifications made. Essential aspects to see if we are on the right track to achieve our goals.
