Good development environment support is essential for good requirements traceability. The paper describes how requirements traceability is supported in Bell-Northern Research's Integrated Development Environment, an internally developed version control and configuration management environment. Emphasis is given to the way in which requirements traceability interacts with the key features of the environment: generic (tool independent), fine-grained design information management that permits users to quickly integrate new tools, and version control/configuration management.
