A model is presented here for the customization of RUP methodology in the critical safety systems. The RUP methodology is studied and applied as a reference for the customization. A comprehensive study for the research and the identification of the critical safety systems is conducted. The expansion of critical safety systems and their necessary involvement in different phases and stages regarding product development is essential. There exists much methodology to expand safe software for safety-critical systems based on objective orientation, which can be used in customization of RUP. The Eclipse Process framework is introduced for the customization studied in the presented paper.
