This chapter describes the fourth iteration of the Unified Process and is part of the construction phase. All required functionality that was scheduled for this iteration has gone through the core workflows: requirements, analysis, design, implementation, and test. The implementation was run, and initial unit tests were performed. In addition, the project planning documents were updated. The code documentation was generated as described in Chapter 5.
We must review the status of the project to decide whether the project can proceed to the next iteration. To decide whether the project is ready, the goals for the five core workflows must be met:
The project meets all goals that were set for this iteration and is therefore ready to proceed to the next phase.
