Rational Unified Process Fundamentals explains key concepts of the IBM Unified Process (RUP) and its fundamental characteristics as an iterative, use case driven, and architecture-centric software development process. The course begins with a discussion of six best practices for software development and then provides an overview of how the RUP is described with disciplines, roles, activities, and artifacts. Then each discipline of the RUP is reviewed through a discussion of workflow details, roles, major artifacts, and guidelines. An introduction to the Unified Modeling Language and an overview of iterative planning are also discussed. Each module is concluded by classroom discussion, answering multiple choice questions, and project planning simulations.
