The increasing complexity of products and processes is making it more and more difficult for companies to keep track of the current status of their development projects and seamlessly trace all development steps. The traceability of all relevant information across system and domain boundaries not only requires new tools but also opens up new perspectives. The newly created knowledge about relationships can be used over the entire product lifecycle through to the operating phase for new use cases and business models. This makes traceability the key to digitalization.
