|Essential Artifacts (in order
||State at milestone
||Updated and reviewed. New risks are likely to
be architectural in nature, primarily relating to the handling of non-functional
||Created and baselined, including detailed descriptions
for the architecturally significant use cases (use-case view) and identification
of key mechanisms and design elements (logical view).
Model (and all constituent artifacts)
||Defined and baselined. Use-case realizations
for architecturally significant scenarios have been defined and required
behavior has been allocated to appropriate design elements. Components
have been identified and the make/buy/reuse decisions sufficiently understood
to determine the construction phase cost and schedule with confidence.
The selected architectural components are integrated and assessed against
the primary scenarios. Lessons learned from these activities may well
result in a redesign of the architecture, taking into consideration alternative
designs or reconsideration of the requirements.
Model (and all constituent artifacts, including Components)
||Initial structure created and major components
identified and prototyped.
||Refined, based on new information obtained during
the phase, establishing a solid understanding of the most critical use
cases that drive the architectural and planning decisions.
||Iteration plan for the construction phase completed
Model (Actors, Use
||A use-case model (approximately 80% complete)all
use cases having been identified in the use-case model survey, all actors
having been identified, and most use-case descriptions (requirements
capture) have been developed.
||Supplementary requirements capturing the non
functional requirements are documented and reviewed.
