      The requirement for a minimum of six iterations in a project

    • D.

    Which two statements are true about an Executable Architecture? (Choose two.)
    • A. 

      It is a disposable prototype of the application

    • B. 

      It is a simulation of the executing system.

    • C. 

      It is a validation (testable) of the architecture.

    • D. 

      It is the baseline for the rest of development.

  • 7. 
    Which is part of the evaluation criteria for successful completion of the Elaboration phase?
    • A. 

      A final set of requirements is agreed upon.

    • B. 

      All detailed design documents are reviewed.

    • C. 

      The architecture is stable.

    • D. 

      Less than 50% of project budget is expended.

  • 8. 
    Which two concepts guide iterative development? (Choose two.)
    • A. 

      Early completion of simple features, to show progress to the customer

    • B. 

      Informal plans, allowing features to be moved to future iterations

    • C. 

      Early baselining of architecture, allowing stability in planning, content and organization

    • D. 

      Scope validation by stakeholders, to account for their needs

  • 9. 
    Why does the risk-time profile decline more rapidly for iterative development than waterfall development? (Choose two.)
    • A. 

      Iterative development exposes design flaws and enables resolution earlier in the lifecycle.

    • B. 

      With iterative development, customer satisfaction is maintained by early, incremental deliveries of capability.

    • C. 

      In iterative development, the software architecture can be revised in any iteration to support new features and overcome performance problems.

    • D. 

      Iterative development allows key, non-functional requirements (i.e. performance, fault tolerance and maintainability) to be addressed early in development.

  • 10. 
    What is a typical breakdown of total project effort across the phases?
    • A. 

      Inception 20% Elaboration 50% Construction 20% Transition 10%

    • B. 

      Inception 5%, Elaboration 20%, Construction 45%, Transition 30%

    • C. 

      Inception 5%, Elaboration 20%, Construction 45%, Transition 30%

    • D. 

      Inception 5% Elaboration 20% Construction 65% Transition 10%

  • 11. 
    How does an iterative approach help with resource and cost control?
    • A. 

      It allows the Project Manager to control allocation of resources by phase. Artifacts evolve as required by each phase and there is increased precision of cost estimates from phase to phase.

    • B. 

      It allows the Project Manager to make budgetary requests with each iteration. These requests are based on the expansion of project scope as requested by the customer.

    • C. 

      It allows iterations to be planned in advance and in detail for all phases. It helps establish costs and a profile of resource usage can be generated in advance for the entire project.

    • D. 

      It allows iterations to be de-scoped as required, at the direction of the Project Manager. It allows better management of costs as features can be moved to later iterations when resources are available.

  • 12. 
    Which two statements are true about iterations? (Choose two.)
    • A. 

      Working software is always delivered to the customer.

    • B. 

      An iterations always has a plan and evaluation criteria.

    • C. 

      An iteration is a mini project with a plan, deliverables and assessment.

    • D. 

      There are always multiple iterations in each phase.

  • 13. 
    Which is a fine-grained plan?
    • A. 

      Software Development Plan

    • B. 

      Business Case

    • C. 

      Iteration Plan

    • D. 

      Risk Management Plan

  • 14.

    • A. 

      It includes development of the Development Case for the project

    • B. 

      It includes creating detailed, fine-grained plans for all subsequent iterations.

    • E. 

      A significant amount of efforts is spent on the development of the Vision and Business Case
