Abstract

Software traceability of an initial stakeholder’s requirement among their corresponding artifacts (i.e. from the plain stakeholders request, to the requirement, its specification, design and code representation) can help to save costs and raise product quality. Unfortunately existing traceability approaches require a great amount of human effort and intervention. In this work we are trying to improve the situation by applying an information retrieval method Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) to discover traceability links among software artifacts automatically.
