Successfully Managing a Real-time Incremental Project - Part One: Defining the Initial Project Schedule

In the real-time industry, software projects using the incremental development process and object oriented methods are becoming more common. However, they are still being managed using project schedules that follow a waterfall process lifecycle. This paper recognizes that a software design and a project schedule are very closely linked. A project schedule must show how the design elements will be implemented. Additionally, a schedule that does not adapt to changes in the design will not accurately reflect the reality of the ongoing project. Author Matthew Hause gives guidance on the techniques for laying out an incremental project schedule, and how to use UML design elements to ensure a process that is adaptable and provides usable functionality at key stages in the project lifecycle.
