The specification of the iterations is a critical part of any RUP-based methodology.  The SLR℠ methodology is no different.  However, the SLR℠ methodology must consider that functionality can be delivered in multiple ways in addition to just software development:

To address these requirements the scope of each iteration will be defined by logical groupings of the new functionality according to the above list.  They are referred to as “layers” in the methodology.  In this way, layer iterations can proceed separately through each phase.  Minor variations to this approach will be unavoidable but will be managed as closely to these groupings as possible.  While different from pure RUP the benefits of this approach are:
