Abstract—Software quality is a major concern in software engineering, particularly when we are dealing with software services that must be available 24 hours a day, please the customer and be kept permanently. In software engineering, requirements management is one of the most important tasks that can influence the success of a software project. Maintain traceability information is a fundamental aspect in software engineering and can facilitate the process of software development and maintenance. This information can be used to support various activities such as analyzing the impact of changes and software verification and validation. However, traceability techniques are mainly used between requirements and software test cases. This paper presents a prototype of a tool that supports the mapping of functional requirements with the pages and HTML elements of a web site. This tool helps maintaining requirements traceability information updated and, ultimately, increasing the efficiency of requirements change management, which may contribute to the overall quality of the software service.

Index Terms—software requirements specification, requirements traceability, requirements management.
