On supporting Design evolution and treaceablity

Vallieswaran V


In agile software development practice, iterations of software development need to evolve the existing system in a manner consistent with its design rationale. Evolution often begins with design representation because it provides a high level view of the system that is easy to understand. The impact of a design change however is poorly understood as is the consistency between different representations of design. Design evolution presents three important issues: consistency amongst design representations, traceability of a design change in code and versioning ties between the code and design repositories in order to maintain consistency. In this effort, we propose a solution to these issues using a relational meta-model and an outline a possible implementation of the same using the layered version model of SCM.
