  1. OMG Issue

SYSML11 — Section: RequirementRelated (from Requirements)

  • Key: SYSML11-17
  • Legacy Issue Number: 10343
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: ( Fraser Chadburn)
  • Summary:

    The names of tracedTo and tracedFrom appear counter-intuitive. On a <<requirement>> (p144)... /tracedTo: NamedElement[*] Derived from all elements that are the client of a <<trace>> relationship for which this requirement is a supplier. On a <<requirementRelated>> (p145)... \tracedFrom: Requirement[*] Derived from all requirements that are the supplier of a <<trace>> relationship for which this element is a client. If a trace dependency ends at a requirement therefore, it would be listed on the <<requirement>> with the property name 'tracedTo'. It is thought that most users wouldexpect this property to be called 'tracedFrom' instead. Should we swap the names of these properties around to avoid this confusion?
