Rational Unified Process Core Workflows: Project Management and Change Management

The Rational Unified Process® is a Software Engineering Process. It provides a disciplined approach to assigning tasks and responsibilities within a development organization. Its goal is to ensure the production of high-quality software that meets the needs of its end-users, within a predictable schedule and budget.

A mere enumeration of all workers, activities and artifacts does not quite constitute a process. We need a way to describe meaningful sequences of activities that produce some valuable result, and to show interactions between workers.

A workflow is a sequence of activities that produces a result of observable value.

Rational Unified Process Core Workflows: Business Modeling

Based on Rational Software White Paper “Best Practices for Software Development Teams

The core process workflows in RUP are divided into six core “engineering” workflows:

  • Business modelling workflow;

  • Requirements workflow;

  • Analysis & Design workflow;

  • Implementation workflow;

  • Test workflow;

  • Deployment workflow;

Requirements

The goal of the Requirements workflow is to describe what the system should do and allows the developers and the customer to agree on that description. To achieve this, we elicit, organize, and document required functionality and constraints; track and document tradeoffs and decisions.

Business Modelling

One of the major problems with most business engineering efforts, is that the software engineering and the business engineering community [1] do not communicate properly with each other. This leads to the output from business engineering is not being used properly as input to the software development effort. The Rational Unified Process addresses this by providing a common language and process for both communities, as well as showing how to create and maintain direct traceability between business and software models.

In Business Modeling we document business processes using so called business use cases. This assures a common understanding among all stakeholders of what business process needs to be supported in the organization. The business use cases are analyzed to understand how the business should support the business processes. This is documented in a business object model. Many projects may not to do business modeling.
