Rational Unified Process and IfSQ

The Rational Unified Process (RUP) is an iterative software development process framework created by the Rational Software Corporation, a division of IBM since 2003[1]. RUP is not a single concrete prescriptive process, but rather an adaptable process framework, intended to be tailored by the development organizations and software project teams that will select the elements of the process that are appropriate for their needs.

Relationship between Rational Unified Process and IfSQ:
The intention of writing code to a programming standard is to assure the reliabilty and maintainability of the end product. With that objective in mind, IfSQ has produced and published standards which can be applied to programs written in any language for any platform.
