CPA-SEL-T:Collaborative Research:Traceability+:a Service Oriented Framework to Support Value-added software Traceability: REU Supplemental Request

Grants and Contracts Details


Traceability plays an important rote in the development and assurance of software systems that permeate our society. It helps to assure that an as-built system correctly implements all requirements by supporting change impact assessment, re-engineering of applications, and other critical software engineering activities. Previously, researchers have focused on delivering point solutions that address specific traceability issues. In contrast, the proposed research will develop a new and powerful traceability model, named Traceability, that will deliver value-added traceability services designed to support diverse stakeholders as they perform critical software engineering activities. For example, an independent verification and validation (IV&V) analyst can use our value-enhanced traceability services to determine if the elements of a design satisFj the requirements, while the developer of an embedded pacemaker controller can determine the scope of a proposed change as well as the amount of effort required to implement the change. Traceability+ will support the needs of a broad spectrum of stakeholders including requirements analysts, reverse engineers, developers, architects, maintainers, and IV&V analysts.
