© 2017 IEEE. Although information retrieval advances significantly improved automated traceability tools, their accuracy is still far from 100% and therefore they still need human intervention. Furthermore, despite the demonstrated benefits of traceability, many practitioners find the overhead for its creation and maintenance too high. We propose the Behavior Driven Traceability Method (BDT) that takes a different standpoint on automated traceability: we establish ubiquitous traceability between user story requirements and source code by taking advantage of the automated acceptance tests that are created as part of the Behavior Driven Development process.
