Definitions for "Traceability"
The property of a result of a measurement whereby it can be related to appropriate standards, generally international or national standards, through an unbroken chain of comparisons all having stated uncertainties
The step-by-step transfer process by which the scale calibration can be related back to primary standards.
(Traçabilité) Records monitoring procedure (audit trail) that is sufficient to determine origin, transfer of ownership and transportation process (i.e. supply chain) for all products labelled as organic or containing organic ingredients.
(IEEE) (1) The degree to which a relationship can be established between two or more products of the development process, especially products having a predecessor-successor or master-subordinate relationship to one another; e.g., the degree to which the requirements and design of a given software component match. See: consistency. (2) The degree to which each element in a software development product establishes its reason for existing; e.g., the degree to which each element in a bubble chart references the requirement that it satisfies. See: traceability analysis, traceability matrix.
the ability to track a finished meat product back to the plant where it was manufactured and the farm where the livestock was raised
The identification of goods or material used in manufacturing or processing to enable the relevant production batch and material source to be traced in case of subsequent defects.
The history and content of all versions of items ‘handed over' from one person or organisation to another must be traceable, as must the results of the ‘handover', ie. Whether the version was accepted or used.
Provision of information (and tracking systems) to provide source, life history and other information demanded by high yielding market segments

a system of record keeping capable of tracing the lineage of the crop to source
The attribute allowing the ongoing location of a shipment to be determined. The registering and tracking of parts, processes, and materials used in production, by lot or serial number.
Those attributes of a system that provide a thread of origin from implementation to the requirements with respect to the specified development envelope and operational environment.
