The RUP Roles and Responsiblities Matrix helps project participants to clearly understand the rolethey are expected to perform and the artifacts associated with that role. Along the top, or horizontal axis, is a list of all the artifacts that the project will produce during the project lifecycle.These artifacts will have been defined prior to the start of the project and will be documented in theNot all projects require every role. On the far right side of the matrix are thenames of each individual who will be performing these roles. In some cases there may be morethan one name for a particular role (e.g. Implementer).creation. It is important to have only one role responsible for the creation of an artifact so there isaccountability for its delivery, however, there can be a number of individuals consulted in itscreation. To determine who is responsible for an artifact look up and down each column (lookingacross the rows will show how many artifacts a specific role is responsible for creating).The R&R Matrix can be hyperlinked to definitions of each artifact and examples of the processesfor the creation of the artifact. The R&R Matrix is intended to be a lightweight mechanism tofaciltate the understanding of project roles within a project and to act as a easy reference for project participants and stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle.Larger projects might require separate R&R matrices for each phase of the project (Inception,Elaboration, Construction, Transition).
This matrix is intended to act as an example only.
