Abstract:

The Rational Unified Process RUP is used broadly by software developers. This technical report fits the Carnegie Mellon trademark Software Engineering Institutes SEIs architecture-centric methods into the framework of the RUP. These methods include the Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method trademark, the SEI Quality Attribute Workshop, the SEI Attribute-Driven Design method, the SEI Cost Benefit Analysis Method, and SEI Active Reviews for Intermediate Design. Since the key process milestone of the Elaboration Phase of the RUP is a completed architecture, the architecture-centric methods appear early in the process during the first two phases i.e., Inception and Elaboration. This report presents a summary of the RUP and then examines the potential uses of the SEIs architecture-centric methods.
