Towards automated traceability maintenance

Patrick Mäder, Orlena Gotel
2012 Journal of Systems and Software  
The overall approach is supported by a prototype tool and empirical results on the effectiveness of tool-supported traceability maintenance are provided.  ...  Furthermore, the goal also requires the maintenance of traceability relations over time as the software system evolves in order to prevent their decay.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors thank Tobias Kuschke and Christian Kittler for implementing the prototype, Johannes Langguth for his work in preparing and analyzing the experiment, and all the students who  ...

An empirical study on requirements traceability using eye-tracking

Nasir Ali, Zohreh Sharafl, Yann-Gael Gueheneuc, Giuliano Antoniol
2012 2012 28th IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance (ICSM)  
Requirements traceability (RT) links help developers to understand programs and ensure that their source code is consistent with its documentation.  ...  Creating RT links is a laborious and resource-consuming task. Information Retrieval (IR) techniques are useful to automatically recover traceability links.  ...  This work has been partially supported by the NSERC Research Chairs on Software Cost-effective Change, Evolution and on Software Patterns and Patterns of Software.  ...
