Traceability Matrix Means Mapping Between “Test cases and
1.Mainly it is used for the identifying the how
many “REQUIREMENTS” are available in your project and
that requirement is covered in your testing Point of u are
2. Once the REQUIREMENT is chance we can easily Find which
test case can be Modified

For a simple requirements Test matrix
template, you want a basic table that you would like to use
for cross-referencing purposes. How do you create one? You
can create a requirements test matrix template in the
following These steps:
Step 1: Find out how many requirements you have.
Step 2: Find out how many test cases you have.
Step 3: Based on these numbers, create a basic table. Let's
suppose you have a list of 90 requirements and 360 test
cases. Based on these numbers, you want to create a table
of 91 rows and 361 columns.
Step 4: Focus on the the first column of your table. One by
one, copy all your 90 requirement numbers, and paste them
into rows 2 through 91 of your table.
Step 5: Focus on the the first row of your table. One by
one, copy all your 360 test case numbers, and paste them
into columns 2 through 361 of your table.
Step 6: Examine each of your 360 test cases, and, one by
one, determine which of the 90 requirements they satisfy.
If, for the sake of this example, test case 64 satisfies
requirement 10, then put a large "X" into cell 11-65 of
your table... and then you have it; you have just created a
requirements test matrix template that you can use for
Traceablity Matrix is a Document which contains a table of
linking information which is used for tracking back for
reference in any kind of confusion or questionable
situations. We can create this by taking columns like UCD,
MTCD or Test Scenario, Detailed Test case document, Defect
