Mitsui/Yusen director just read the latest article in CIO that recommends replacingthis methodology with the Rational Unified Process and comes to you requesting you to consider switching. What do you say? Write a memo of your main points for the project leader at Mitsui or Nippon Yusen.Waterfall development-based methodology is a great method for large and complex projects, however, because it lacks agility and flexibility--this can often lead to extremely expensive projects. While RUP is also process heavy it also takes into account the need for adaptability and change during the development process, which the waterfall method does not. RUP also defines the roles and activities of team members in depth at each stage on the production of visual models. While both have many similarities, RUPs biggers contrast is its iterative development approach, which builds the product in several stages on frequent feedback.

3.Suppose you are an analyst working for an ice-cream shop chain that has eight locations in the Bay Area to develop an HR system. Would you use the Unified Process to develop the system, or would you prefer one of the other approaches? Why? For this situation the best process to use would be scrum. Using this process for a small scale project like this would be effective because of the small number of locations it has to manage and create a new system for. Since this ice cream shop is not large scale yet using as small scaled approach would be the most effective in trying to implement and develop an HR system. In utilizing the scrum approach this project would be finished quickly by using a smaller team thus saving time and money. But if you try using a large scale process like waterfall, it would not be as effective in this case of developing an HR system for a smaller scaled business.
