bilateral traceability
      #713292 - 07/30/12 04:28 AM

Could someone throw more light on what is meant by the term bilateral traceability. I find it in standards like automotive SPICE.
is it something like horizontal + vertical tracebaility say in V Model?
e.g. requirements to test cases as well as requirments to design

The automotive SPICE standards do not use terms like Vertical and Horizontal traceability because they are derived from ISO/IEC standards. They use bilateral traceability to cover the fact that any traceability link should be tracked in both ways. This term causes confusion when it is extended to other software standards like V-model or CMMI based frameworks. The horizontal / vertical traceability which comes from V-model is a very close example of this term.

Hope this helps.
