Discipline: Analysis & Design
This Discipline explains how to transform Requirements Work Products into the Work Products specifying the design of the software the project will develop.
Main Description

The purposes of Analysis & Design are:

  • To transform the requirements into a design of the system-to-be.
  • To evolve a robust architecture for the system.
  • To adapt the design to match the implementation environment, designing it for performance.

The Analysis & Design discipline is related to other disciplines, as follows:

  • The Requirements discipline provides the primary input for Analysis and Design.
  • The Implementation discipline implements the design.
  • The Test discipline tests system designed during Analysis and Design.
  • The Environment discipline develops and maintains the supporting artifacts that are used during Analysis and Design.
  • The Project Management discipline plans the project, and each iteration (described in an Iteration Plan).
