Use Case: Access impact from change in a set of requirements (on a system's designs)

In this scenario we begin with a system of resources in some context (i.e. project, stream). A subset of these resources (a set of requirements) is about to change or is proposed to change. The goal of the impact analysis is to determine what related resources may also have to change to maintain the integrity of the system.


The system has a set set of work items, requirements, test cases and design resources linked together. The resources and links used in this scenario are defined by the following vocabularies. A short summary is here.

Change Management Vocabulary

Requirements Vocabulary

Architecture Vocabulary

Quality Management Vocabulary
