Design information is important for software development projects because it determines their cost and product. In this research, a model has been made which can trace how information moves in a project by paying attention to the design information which is hard to trace by process-centric project management. On the basis of the model, a traceability matrix method has been constructed which quantifies the complexity of the traceability. It has been confirmed that high quality information-centric project management is realized by applying the model and the method to software development projects.
