For software developers seeking a more effective approach to design and analysis, the Rational Unified Process (RUP) combines the best ideas from several market-leading analysis and design methodologies, together with best practices proven in real-world enterprise projects. However, many developers and managers find RUP overwhelming when they first encounter it. In this book, Kendall Scott simplifies RUP, scaling it down and organizing it into bite-size chunks that are easy to understand -- and use. The author begins with an overview of RUP, presenting a nutshell description, history, major themes, and key terminology. Next, he introduces each of RUP's five workflows -- Requirements, Analysis, Design, Implementation, and Test -- covering goals, roles, activities, artifacts, and more. Each Activity is illuminated with a diagram clearly explaining its nonlinear nature. Scott details the Inception, Elaboration, and Construction phases of the RUP process, culminating in a description of the Transition phase, in which the project team rolls out its system to customers. From start to finish, Scott relies on the same Internet Bookstore case study that he has used successfully in his best-selling UML Explained. For all software engineers, developers, analysts, architects, project and IT managers seeking to optimize their software development processes; and for every IT professional using or considering RUP.

Kendall Scott is a UML trainer and consultant. With more than sixteen years of experience as a technical writer, he is skilled in converting complex, technical material into understandable and easy-to-use manuals.
