Incidentally, FWIW, in the world of service orientation this is called
"asset inventory". An asset inventory is a list of asset descriptions,
designed to help with service discovery and change management.
Assets can be non-software, software units, or software services. Assets
are described in terms of providers and users, basic capabilities
(software assets: name and basic description), how satisfactory, and how
easy to change. Issues can be effectively tracked and prioritized
against assets, including by delegation to project backlogs.
