American Management Systems

The AMS process, LPS Methodology: Object Technology, is described in reference [Cohen 93].
AMS evolved their process by adding "object techniques and methods" to the Life cycle Productivity System.
They adopted features of Jacobson and Wirfs Brock et al.: use cases, multiple models (system, analysis, design, application, database), and responsibility driven design.
In the incremental development activities, each development cycle satisfies a subset of system use cases. Subsequent cycles build upon development of earlier cycles, hence they are incrementally building the system.
Within a cycle, certain activities are performed iteratively: analysis and design modeling, coding, feedback to system use cases. They refer to this as a "mini waterfall."
