Hi
I have a dount about RUP.
I want to know if each iteration has those 4 phase[interception , elaboration, construction, transition]?
or each of these phases has some iteration inside itself?
I mean do we pass these 4 phase and then come back and do them frm begining?


thank you.

The idea is that you do a varying amount of each (inception, elaboration, construction, transition) in each iteration during the whole project. Typically the focus on each "phase" changes during the project, e.g. the first couple of iterations are mostly about inception and elaboration while the last couple of iterations are probably focused on construction and transition.

Sorry, that's not true.

The idea is that in each iteration you have a varying amount of the workflows (analysis, design, implementation, testing, etc.). Every phase consists of a number of iterations, and the distribution of work between workflows (driven by the current risks) depends on the phase an iteration is in.

Hi
Thank you for your reply ,
I get this from the posts and links which you provide
pleas correct me if im wrong:
Each phase has some iteration inside itself , So iteration did not contain phases ann its the phases which contain one or more iteration.

Thank you

I wonder why you did decide to show the last discipline, Software Process Improvement, to be mainly done even before inception? I typically prefer to have weekly to monthly reflection workshops to make improving/adapting the process an ongoing activity...
