Title: Requirements traceability in the SCRUM software development process
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Advanced
Description: Westermo is one of the world’s leading edge companies providing solutions for industrial data communications for several companies from different industrial segments, e.g., Railways, Road and Factory automation, and it is part of the Beijer Industrial Data Communication division.
Westermo, follows the Scrum software development process.
In order to raise the already high level of quality of their software products, it is important to introduce traceability within their software development process.

The term traceability refers to the possibility, within a given software development process, to trace an artifact throughout the software development process. Ideally, traceability should enhance the software development process by i) enabling a better understanding of the product under development and of the relationships among its artifacts and ii) improving the overall quality of the product under development.

The main objective of this thesis is the definition of a new software development process which integrates traceability from requirements management through the software product validation. An amenable, yet secondary goal would be to get the traceability working in the reverse direction. An important aspect is that the new software development process should try not to affect the related administrative activities.
