Titel:  Fraunhofer TraceMan – An Enterprise Architect based solution for managing artifacts traceability in agile development.

Industrial experiences have shown that the ’just enough’ documentation being considered in distributed agile development of large scale systems goes beyond the traditional set recommended by Agile evangelists. Indeed, up front architectural specification and more detailed requirements specification are, together with user stories and test specifications, playing important roles to ensure the proper development of such systems. In this regard, one of the main challenges is how to keep the development artifacts traceable and consistent to each other. To be effective, traceability should be consider in the very beginning of the development process. Moreover, traceability techniques should be minimally intrusive, in the sense that people should be able to keep using the tools they are used to for creating the artifacts (e.g. Rally for creating User Stories, Microsoft Word for creating detailed requirements documents) and, still, be able to keep traceability among the artifacts produced. TraceMan is an Enterprise Architect based solution for managing artifacts traceability in agile development, aiming at non-intrusiveness traceability. It acts as a central manager, allowing engineers to use tools they are used to for producing development artifacts, and ensuring artifacts traceability from the moment of their creation.
