LHP Link: How does our Bi-directional Traceability Solution Add Value?   Introduction With the growing trend in innovation within the automotive industry and the technology embedded in the products, it is important to understand how far back a product’s life cycle extends. Among other considerations like data analytics, it travels back to the management and implementation of requirements. Having visibility of the entire development of a product and its parts throughout assembly can ensure that they are being developed within the standards and requirements established beforehand. For your company to maintain growth with little disruption in its internal processes, it is worth investing in a tool integration solution that offers valuable bi-directional traceability.
