IBM Rational Tools in Project Management and their Application to Solutions under Construction


Mikhail Bich

The situation in RUP-assisted project management in companies in Russia, project management tools, motivation and the reasons for the current situation are considered. Brief vision of IBM Rational tools use in project management, as well as approaches to their introduction in project management process and to the methods of their further mastering are given. (Tools: IBM Rational Method Composer, IBM Rational Asset Manager, IBM Rational RequisitePro, IBM Rational SoDA, IBM Rational ClearQuest, IBM Jazz Platform tools).
Proposals to use the functionality of the tools to be used as an intermediate layer in solutions under construction are nominated and put forward. Proposed use of following tools is described:

  • IBM Rational Method Composer (RMC) – to create sites/references/ knowledge bases. The information about RMC customization methods is given.
  • IBM Rational Asset Manager (RAM) – for the warehousing of documented information, storing normative documents, references, etc. An example of an implemented solution is showed.
  • IBM Rational RequisitePro (RQ) – to describe, construct and display cause-effect relationships, covering the scope, validity of selection, reporting metrics management, etc. The architecture of the solution is proposed.
  • IBM Rational ClearQuest (CQ) – for organizing and keeping records of meetings results, etc. The architecture of the solution is proposed.
