The Traceability Matrix is a very good document that gives us the complete overview / confidence on the end-to-end activities of the SDLC. But it needs to be done carefully as we need to capture a lot of complex data at all stages of an SDLC

Using the Traceability Matrix we will be able to confidently say that all the User Requirements are properly documented and respectively addressed well in the following also:

1. Functional Requirements Document
2. Design Documents (HLDD and LLDD)
3. Coding and Unit Testing
4. System Test Plans
5. Test Execution Reports

So precisely, a Traceability Matrix gives us the end-to-end visibility of the Requirements.

Traceability metrics are measures describing how well traceability is performed from original allocated requirements to software through design, coding and testing.  Traceability metrics ought to consider both directions, i.e., from individual requirements to test results, and from test results to individual requirements.

Traceability matrix is a matrix which associates the requirements to its work products,Test cases.
The advantage of traceability is to ensure the completeness of requirements.
Every Test case should address a req and Every Req has one or more associated test cases.
