2008 Workshop Software Reengineering  
Traceability of various artifacts created duringthe developmentofsoftware systems plays an important role in softwareevolution. Subsequent changes to artifacts must be traced to other artifactspotentially affected by thechange, thus ensuring the system'sconsistency or enablingtoestimatethe impact of changes.
