I have been working in a small team this week on setting up a framework for a large project. We had all of our toys out of the box and it was important to make sure that everything was correct. We had DOORS Next Generation, Team Concert, Quality Manager, Design Manager, and RELM, sitting in the background were the Lifecycle Query Engine, Jazz Reporting Service, Global Configurations and Lifecycle projects. In total there were around 30 Project Areas created across the different applications and in four separate lifecycle projects.
I first created a picture showing the project areas and how they fitted into the lifecycle projects. Just a simple PowerPoint slide with some coloured boxes. The important part here was to get the finalised names written down. You can see in the image below the general layout, although I have anonymised the names here.
