Towards automated traceability maintenance

Patrick Mäder, Orlena Gotel
2012 Journal of Systems and Software  
To ensure that the anticipated benefits of these tasks can be realized, it is necessary to have an up-to-date set of traceability relations between the established artifacts.  ...  Furthermore, the goal also requires the maintenance of traceability relations over time as the software system evolves in order to prevent their decay.  ...  Furthermore, the authors would also like to thank the anonymous reviewers of an earlier version of this paper for their useful suggestions for improving the final paper.  ...

Software traceability with topic modeling

Hazeline U. Asuncion, Arthur U. Asuncion, Richard N. Taylor
2010 Proceedings of the 32nd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering - ICSE '10  
We propose an automated technique that combines traceability with a machine learning technique known as topic modeling.  ...  To test our approach, we have implemented several tools: an artifact search tool combining keyword-based search and topic modeling, a recording tool that performs prospective traceability, and a visualization  ...  Hendrickson for evaluating the captured links rendered in the visualization tool.  ...
