Introducing Maintenance Items

Element Maintenance Items can be used with any element, including Requirements, Components, Classes and other elements to capture problems, changes, issues, tasks, events and decisions that affect an individual element. Using maintenance items to track official changes, additions and deletions to sets of Requirements, Components, User Stories and other specifications provides a sound basis for overall project governance and traceability.
