This paper introduces an engineering design information traceability framework. Maximizing the value of engineering design information is partly dependent on trust partly on its proper understanding, both dependent on knowing where the information has come from, the reasons for its generation and so on. This knowledge is reliant on the traceability of the information and its development. Hitherto traceability has been an adhoc process. The research reported here relates to the early stages of the development of a formal framework for engineering design information traceability. This consists of a traceability model and a language for describing the traceability entities and associated process, and a means of representing traceability instances
