Requirements traceability is vital for supporting consulting deliverables, but what value does it add if the development is internal and the software is accepted (passes acceptance testing)? Traceability, which assumes that development is built from requirements, seems to be a method for explaining mistakes rather than preventing them. Wouldn't test driven development accomplish provide quality assurance with less overhead?
