Is anyone out there able to share a
comprehensive SCM policy and procedure plan that
effectively utilizes the various features of
StarTeam: CRs, Projects, Views, Labels, Links, and Tasks. I am particularly interested in seeing
ideas on a "scalable" approach to managing
changes that impact multiple systems and tasks.

Background: Last April, I took a position as
Manager of Systems Archticture for a small
Financial Services organization. We are an all
microsoft shop maintaining four fairly complex
(100-200 module), component-based VB/sql-server
desktop applications and three component-based
ASP/MTS web sites, we also have several large and
complex batch process, a VRU, and about 20
smaller, stand-alone VB applications. There is a
significant amount of code sharing across the web
applications. We have typically have four-to-six
new development projects in progress and maybe
ten-to-twenty fixes per month. We have about 20
developers on the IT staff and four PMs. We are
currently using VSS, email, and spreadsheets to
implement a somewhat faulty CM process.

I am leading a CM process improvement project
including getting off of visual source safe. We
have selected StarTeam 4.2.699 as our new CM product and we are now designing the new SCM processes. I was wondering if you can offer any words of wisdom regarding tips and tricks and how to avoid pitfalls with StarTeam and also how to utilizes the various features of StarTeam effectively: CRs, Projects, Views, Labels, Links, and Tasks.
