Impact Analysis

Impact Analysis shows you a complete picture of all upstream and downstream related items that might be affected by changes. You can run an impact analysis on an item or on a change request.

With traceability, you can see how a change might impact a selected item before you make the change.

For example, if you're about to change a requirement, you can run an impact analysis to see the degree to which the change might impact other requirements and verifications.
