Artifact: Installation Artifacts
This artifact consists of the software and documented instructions required to install the product.
Work Product Kinds: Solution

The purpose of the installation artifacts is to enable someone to install the product.

Representation Options

The Installation Artifacts may enclose the following elements:

  • Installation scripts, setup files, and so on.
  • Installation instructions

Installation Artifacts are needed if installation programs will be used to configure the system in the deployment environment. If the software is deployed only once (as is the case with many systems built by a company for internal use on a corporate server), installation artifacts may be omitted.

In a system where the user is expected to install the product, the installation instructions can be included in the user's guide. For a more complicated installation where qualified service staff are needed, there needs to be a separate installation description.
