RTM is Requirements traceability matrix.
mapping requirements to test cases and test cases to defects, to ensure the coverage of requirements. It also used in root cause analysis of the defect.
RTM is maintained either in excel or using any test management tool like QC.
Requirement traceability Matrix is the document which co-relates the requirements with test cases.It can be used to asses test coverage. to determine whether we tested all the requirements. It can be used more as a management tools not Planning tool. Usually PM/TL will prepare the document.
As an tester RTM document help us in 1.Functional testing, 2.Interdependencies with other modules at field level and functional level(Integration testing) 3.Most important at regression testing.
In short it is document which shows how many test cases are passes according to the requirement. And important for client and company to know the coverage of project.
