Abstract: Software systems are inevitably subject to continuous evolution causing model changes introduced by new or modified requirements. To maintain the consistency of the various software models from requirements to code, a change impact analysis and management means is necessary. Such a means identifies the effects of each change on both a particular model and all related models. This paper proposes an approach that analyzes and manages the impact of changes on software requirements and design modeled in UML. The proposed approach has the advantages of dealing with both structural and semantic traceability. It uses semantic relationships and an information retrieval technique to determine the traceability between the requirements and design models. In addition, it exploits intra and inter UML diagram dependencies to assist developers in identifying the necessary changes that their diagrams must undergo after each requirement change. The quantitative evaluation of our approach shows that i ts structural and semantic traceability makes it reach a precision of 84% and a recall of 91%. (More)
