4 Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with the Unified Process Overview  Unified Process (UP) development methodology ~ Consists of phases, iterations, and disciplines ~ Provides framework for project definition and execution  Project management: critical support discipline  Project Management prominent in inception phase  Tasks include monitoring and controlling projects 5 Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with the Unified Process Project Management  Development project artifacts (products) ~ Development of a new software system ~ Enhancement or upgrade of an existing system ~ Integration of software into existing environment  Projects constrained by schedule and resources  Project novelty presents great challenges ~ Different products are produced ~ Different activities required for varying schedules ~ Different resources are used 6 Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with the Unified Process Project Success Factors  Development projects produce software systems  Projects are wide ranging ~ Simple Web sites ~ Implementation of real-time business applications  Issues complicating project management ~ Sophisticated business needs ~ Changing technology ~ Integrating OS, support programs, and new systems  Project success rate very low: 28 percent as of 2000
