Following the Roadmap to Successful Traceability

 
September 23rd, 2013 by Louie De Luna

If DO-254 is both the mission and the map required to achieve compliance, then traceability represents the roads on that map. Consider this.

- Roads connect two or more places on a map; traceability connects two or more elements in a project (such as functions, requirements, concept, design, verification data and test results).

- Road names help identify specific places that are linked to it; traceability names help identify specific project elements that are linked to it.

– In the absence of roads, reaching your destination is practically impossible;  in the absence of traceability achieving compliance is also practically impossible.

According to DO-254 guidance, traceability is the correlation between the individual system requirements, hardware requirements, conceptual design, detailed design, implementation and verification results. Traceability entails that all system functions are traceable all the way down to the FPGA requirements, verification test cases and test results. This ensures that the development process for the system and FPGA is requirements-based.
