Question for RUP (Rational Unified Process) experts.
We are going to have an inception phase on the project where we will provide project management plan, software requirements specification (SRS), etc.
However, according to the methodology, we should not start the elaboration phase until artifacts from the Inception phase are accepted by the client/stakeholders.
I'd like to utilize resources as much as I can, so my idea is to provide the artifacts for acceptance, start elaboration phase right away, and then, during the Acceptance phase, do some improvements to design documents if such are needed. This lets me to save some time and not just find ways for acceptance.
Would that work? Or there are other approaches?
