    This report surveys the requirements traceability literature and gives some recommendations for further research and for an approach to consultancy concerning traceability in the 2RARE project. The problem of maintaining traceability in a development project is viewed as the problem of maintaining an information system that maintains the relevant links between items developed during the process. These items may vary from requirements to design and implementation documents. To develop and implement such an information system, we must identify the needs for tracking information, made a model of this information, design usage procedures for the system, and implement the system. Accordingly, the literature on traceability is organized under the headings needs, models and usage. Furthermore, tracking tools are briefly reviewed.
