About Relationships

Relationships provide traceability between items, design parts, and requests. You can use relationships to record whether an item is affected by an issue reported in a request or to specify other items which are derived from, or which are used to derive, an item. You can also unrelate items, if necessary, depending on the state the item is in.

Relationship types are system-defined or user-defined. If you are the Product Manager, you can set up user-defined relationship types in the process model.
