Impact Analysis

Impact Analysis shows you the entire picture of all upstream and downstream related items that might be affected by changes.

With traceability, you can see the impact of a change to a selected item before the change is made.

For example, if you're about to change a requirement, you can first see who is assigned to related items and include them on a comment about the change. 

Impact Analysis quick find
