In this tutorial, we try to answer the following questions;

  1. What is Rational Unified Process RUP?
  2. Phases of RUP? inception, elaboration, construction, transition

What is Rational Unified Process?

  • Rational Unified Process is also called RUP.
  • RUP is a process for software development.
  • Inventor of RUP is Rational Software Corporation.
  • RUP involves 4 phases;
    • Inception
    • Elaboration
    • Construction
    • Transition

      What is inception phase?

      • Inception phase involves the following activities;
        • Requirements understanding and requirements description
        • Understand the business case of the system being developed.
        • Describes the scope of the system.
        • Describes the goals of the system.
        • To identify the following  to interact with the systems initially;
          • External systems
          • People 
          • Organizations
        • To describe the followings initially;
          • Schedule
          • Estimate of the overall system
          • Risk assessment

What is elaboration phase?

  • Refine the requirements
  • To ensures the followings for construction phase;
    • Standards
    • Guidelines
    • Processes
    • Tools
  • Understanding of high priority risks
  • Elimination of high-quality risks.

    What is Construction phase?

    • To completely understand and describing the remaining requirements that were miss during inception and elaboration.
    • Prepare design of the system.
    • To ensure the successful validation of the customer.
    • To optimize the resources.
    • To minimize the cost.
    • To develop the versions of the system.

      What is Transition phase?

      • Delivery of overall system to the customer.
      • Defects findings
      • System modifications.
      • Product installation
      • Product release
