What to turn in

All artifacts of this phase of the Rational Unified Process including, but not limited to:

Class presentation

You will give an oral management presentation on your project after each RUP phase. This will be on the day the report is due, except for phase three when the report will be given on Wednesday, April 28, 2004. The report is to be 10 minutes long. Note: I WILL make you stop at the end of your time. Your presentation should have two components of approximately equal importance:

  1. Client-centered: Think of this part as a presentation to your client. Talk about
    • the business problem you are solving
    • how your project will appear in use to solve the problem
    • benefits to the business - how have you helped
  2. Process-centered: Think of this part as a presentation to the head of the software development firm (your hypothetical employer). Talk about
    • the development process you went through
    • project rationale - why did you do what you did
    • lessons learned

You may talk a little about the technologies you used if you wish, but the client probably does not care HOW you worked your magic. The head of your company probably does not care about the details of the technology either, unless there are lessons there that can improve productivity on future projects.
