Graph of the Workflow
The process workflow graph shows the
key activities in an iteration cycle. The completion of a cycle (a
release) represents an increment forward in the development of
Each member of the development team uses the flow graph to guide their activities.
The team lead
should be able to identify at any time where each member is
located within the workflow. Not every member will be in the same
place in the workflow at the same time, nor is this necessary. However,
project planners should try to assign use-case collections such
that convergence at the synchronization point is possible within an reasonable time
The amount of time and effort spent in the different activity
boxes during a given iteration will depend on the phase of the
project. The distribution of time and resources spent on business modeling, requirements
capture, analysis and design, implementation, and testing for a
healthy project is illustrated in the
diagram on the Phases and Iterations page.
Refer to the workflow page for a
detailed description of the workflow elements.
