Because use cases are not part of a process flow, a scheme needs to be set
up whereby the use cases are directly traceable to specific requirements,
e.g. Use Case 567.896d is traced to Requirement R567.

CASE Tools such as Rational help provide this kind of traceability, or you
could set up links between a requirements and use case database.
