With Astah Professional, you can generate a Traceability Map.
Traceability Map is a graphical notation to show traceability relationship between models elements in a project.
Each Traceability Map is generated focusing on a specific model element.
By grasping all the traceability relationships of models, you can maintain the consistency of the diagrams and models as a whole.
There are three ways to generate a Traceability Map.
Right-click on a model and select [Open Traceability Map].
The Traceability Maps will include the following model information.
Package, Model, Subsystem, Class, UseCase, Component, Artifact, Node, External Entity, Data Store, ER Entity, Requirement and TestCase
Association, AssociationClass, Generalization, Realization, Dependency, Usage, Template Binding, Extend, Include, Identifying Relationship, Non-Identifying Relationship and Many-to-Many Relationship and Subtype
Once you create a Traceability Map, you can not only see traceability relationship of models, but also quickly access where the mode on diagram and in the structure tree.
From the traceability map, you can see jump to the model in the tree view from [Show in Structure Tree] menu.
If you modified models after creating a traceability map, please update your map by clicking the [update] button or choose [Update Traceability Map] menu from the map’s pop-up menu.
Alternatively, you can update all of the traceability maps from [Tools] – [Traceability Map] – [Update All Traceability Maps].
After you create the Traceability Map, you can export it to the RTF document from [Tools] – [Traceability Map] – [Export to RTF] or select [Export to RTF] from the Map’s pop-up menu.
