Traceability Matrix is used to link each individual requirement collected in the requirements collection process to one or more WBS components. We use it to ensure that resources are spent only on tasks that can be linked to at least one solution requirement, and that no tasks are unnecessary redundant.

We use requirements collection tools, such as interviews, bench-marking, facilitated workshops, group creativity and observation, to collect project requirements. Then we identified the priority of project requirements and made a Project Requirement Documentation.
