Ability to reconstruct a determination chain

Introduction to the notion

Source: Enterprise Transformation Manifesto; paragraph 5.5.

Traceability is one of the fundamental properties that has to be considered when analyzing or designing the Enterprise System. Others include: agility, auditability and interoperability.


To ensure this capacity requires a certain discipline. Modelers have to force themselves to put traceability links into place each time they create or document an element that depends on another. If this precaution is taken at the design stage, the impact analysis when change occurs can be carried out quasi-instantaneously.

Related terms: projection, derivation, justification, enterprise description repository, holistic approach.
