Engineering changes and requirement changes strongly interfere with each other. Traceability helps to formalize this interface on a process and organizational level. We propose a data model that includes information elements for different change stages and all related requirement artifacts, solution artifacts or production artifacts. It facilitates the access to necessary information about relations or dependencies between these artifacts. Hence, change effects can easily be estimated and relevant people/information for the decision about a change and its implementation can be identified.
