Modern software development is unimaginable without the help of Application lifecycle management systems (ALMs) due to the heavy documentation and communication needs, especially in safety-critical developments. In this paper the idea of Augmented Lifecycle Space is presented together with its use and benefits. The main target of application is to enhance traceability and consistency throughout the development with minimal or reduced human effort. The idea can be realized easily in homogeneous ALM systems. In case of heterogeneous systems, which is the main scope of this research, some kind of interoperability is required among the used tools. Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) is a possible solution and it is used to illustrate a possible setup for further studies.
