Module C J. Investigate IBM’s Rational Unified Process (RUP) on the Web. RUP is a commercial version that extends aspects of the Unified Process. Write a brief memo describing how it is related to the Unified Process as described in this chapter. (Hint: A good website with which to begin is .) IBM’s RUP is known as a software engineering process. the Rational Unified Process is designed and documented using the Unified Modeling Language (UML). An underlying object model, the Unified Software Process Model (USPM) provides a very coherent backbone to the process. RUP is not a single concrete prescriptive process, but rather an adaptable process framework , intended to be tailored by the development organizations and software project teams that will select the elements of the process that are appropriate for their needs. RUP is a specific implementation of the unified process . As discussed in the chapter, RUP also utilizes the Unified Modeling Language. In addition, The phases are inception, elaboration, construction, and transition. The workflows include business modeling, requirements, analysis, design, implementation, test, deployment, configuration and change management, project management, and environment. These phases are also key elements in IBM’s RUP, and there essential for development of projects. K. Suppose you are a project manager who typically has been using a waterfall development–based methodology on a large and complex project. Your manager has just read the latest article in Computerworld that advocates replacing this methodology with the Unified Process and comes to you requesting you to switch. What do you say? If higher management informed me to switch methodologies from waterfall to Unified Process, it would be a challenging task. Of course I would let them know I’ll adjust, as I would not want them to disappoint; however, I would inform my manager that I will need time to adjust because using the waterfall based method usually means completing one step entirely, then moving to the next. With unified process, there is more elaboration on every step, and each phase requires the
