More recently, a number of lighter-weight and more agile instantiations of RUP, including Agile RUP and OpenUP (an open source process under the auspices of the Eclipse foundation2), have become available. Requirements in Iterative Processes In iterative processes, we see a purposeful move away from the traditional big, upfront design (BUFD) requirements and design artifacts, such as software requirements specifications, design specifications, and the like, which served to define and govern implementations in waterfall implementations.

In software development, variability is inherent. Instead of eliminating variability, we must design systems that expect and address variability and even exploit it when appropriate. Reduce batch sizes: Large batch sizes create unnecessary variability and cause severe delays in delivery and quality. The most important batch is the transport (handoff) batch between teams and between roles within a team. Optimize proximity (co-location) to enable small batch sizes. Good infrastructure (test automation, continuous integration, and so on) and loose architectural coupling enable delivery of software in small increments (batches).
