The Elements of Design

  • Systems design discipline:

    • Describe, organize, and structure system components

    • Purpose: enable system construction and deployment

  • Two tiers of discipline tasks

    • High (architectural)

      • Hardware, network, and system software infrastructure

    • Low(detail design)

      • Small modules such as software design for a use case

Design Activities in the UP Life Cycle

Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with the Unified Process


Project management coordinating the project
Project Management  Coordinating the Project

  • Design activities require substantial coordination

  • Complicating factors

    • Tracking multiple iterations in parallel

    • Initiation of two other miniprojects

      • Data conversion project

      • Test case development project

    • Initiation of construction activities (programming)

    • Addition (or departure) of team members

    • Distribution of workers over different locations

Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with the Unified Process


Coordinating project teams
Coordinating Project Teams

  • Project schedule: tool that coordinates various activities

  • Scheduling duties

    • Update the schedule

      • Estimate durations for design and construction tasks

      • Estimate duration of tasks associated with requirements

    • Delegate scheduling duties to key teams

    • Coordinate various scheduling efforts with status meetings

Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with the Unified Process


Deployment environment
Deployment Environment

  • System operational environment

    • Hardware

    • System software

    • Networking environment

  • Remember ALL of these components

Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with the Unified Process


Middleware
Middleware

  • Middleware

    • Connects parts of an application

    • Enables requests and data to pass among them

  • Common types of middleware

    • Teleprocessing monitors

    • Transaction processing monitors

    • Object request brokers (ORBs)

  • Many vendors for Middleware
