Integrating Software-Architecture-Centric Methods into the Rational Unified Process

Abstract

The Rational Unified Process (RUP) is used broadly by software developers. This technical report fits the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute's (SEI's) architecture-centric methods into the framework of the RUP. These methods include the Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method, 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 SEI's architecture-centric methods.
