<p>In a traditional document driven process any changes to requirements need
to be verified and validated manually. A solution is proposed to link
requirements specifications to their implementation and track changes.</p>
<p>Integrating specifications documents into CI/CD pipelines enables the agile
creation of always up-to-date documentation for the built/shipped artefacts.
We link specific versions of specification items with code, tests, and other
artefacts through their identifier and hash value.</p>
Modern development practices have introduced continuous integration. It
ensures that ingtegration steps create as little friction as possible.
Furthermore all unit-tests are supposed to be succesfull at any given point in
Specifications documents can not trace this gap automatically and any changes
on either side (implementation or specification) is subject to manual
An extensible solution is proposed to link specification items with code
(text) or any binary with a specific interpreter.
A demonstration is given how a hypothetical spacecraft has its tea brewer connected
with Spacewire and the traceability is established. The data import from a DOORS
Excel dump is shown and how to link it to a given specification.
