 this matrix defines the mapping between customer requirements and prepared testcases by testengineers.this matrix is requirements traceability matrix or requirements validation matrix.this is used by testing team to verify how far the testcases prepared have covered the requirements of the functionalities to be tested.

A traceability matrix documentsÂ…1).User and functional requirements.2).Design specifications that address each user requirement.3). Testing references (i.e., Operational, and User Acceptance) and specific objectives orStandard Operations Procedures (SOPs) which verify that the user requirements havebeen met.

A traceabitity matrix serves to map activities in every phase of the SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle).

A typical SDLC might have the following documents documenting each of the phases:

1. Business Requirements (BR)

2. System Requirements (SR)

3. Design Specification (DS) 

4. Unit Specifications(s) (US)

6. Unit Test Cases (UTC)

7. System Test Cases (STC) 

8. User Acceptance Test Cases (UAT)

The content of each of these documents is identified via identifiers.

i.e. , BR has BR numbers, SR has SR numbers, Design Specification has Design identifiers, Unit/System Test Cases have Test Case Ids.

Now, the traceability matrix consists of rows and columns.

The rows are identified through BRs and the columns have the SDLC phases as headers. the cells in the matrix are filled with the identifiers taken from the corresponding documents. This way, every element in every phase falls into place and any particular element can be traced to a BR. This fulfills the need to trace all activity in the SDLC to its intented purpose.

The tractability matrix is nothing but mapping the requirements in the row of the table and the test cases for the requirement are mentioned in the column of table, this gives clear idea to the tester, whether we completed test cases for all the requirement are not.

The mapping of Test Requirements with Test Case to check weather all requirements have been covered is called traceability matrix.
There are two kinds of Traceability matrix.
1. Forward Traceability Matrix.
2. Backward Traceability Matrix.

A traceability matrix is a document, usually in the form of a table, that correlates any two baselined documents that require a many-to-many relationship to determine the completeness of the relationship. It is often used with high-level requirements (these often consist of marketing requirements) and detailed requirements of the product to the matching parts of high-level design, detailed design, test plan, and test cases.
