Building traceability matrices is an essential part of the validation process, providing documented evidence to prove that the intended use of the system has been tested at the requirement or functional level. With ValGenesis, traceability matrices can be dynamically created and updated in real-time to reflect changes made to specifications and test functions. Our VLMS allows users to map multiple documents against each other, automatically linking individual specifications to test step levels. Building traceability matrices has never been more accessible. With just a few clicks of a mouse, our system automatically builds comprehensive trace matrices that provide both forward and backward traceability. Users can also view the traceability between documents for completeness before routing them for review/approval, significantly reducing the overall time needed for authoring.
The trace matrix function available in ValGenesis VLMS offers our clients several useful functions and features:
A dynamic traceability matrix generation function helps to expedite the trace matrix generation process and efficiently performs coverage analysis by viewing the relationship between related items
Requirements are linked at the test step level for efficient traceability
Our system supports one to many, many to one, many to many and V model relationships at the requirement level
ValGenesis supports forward, backward and end to end traces
Trace matrices can be approved through a controlled workflow
Any number of items can be included in a single trace matrix. For example, a single trace matrix can have URS, FRS, DS, OQ etc
