Topic: "Internal" intermediate versions of a product, numbering
By development of a ready product which is planned to release, we inside work for ourselves with intermediate internal "versions". And it turns out that such internal version in which we conduct development of any new functionality, at us not one, and a little. For example, in one "the internal version" development of the functional unit-1 is conducted. And in another "the internal version" development of the functional unit-2, in the third - the functional unit-3 is conducted. Then these functional blocks unite and the version for testing to release turns out. If any functional block by the time of "join" had not time to complete, it continue to do in that "the internal version". As a result such situation when there are some the intermediate internal versions in which something is developed and finished was added. It creates some problems with "storage" what functional block in what intermediate version is developed and at what stage of readiness is. There was a necessity of numbering of these intermediate versions. And it turns out that is necessary "" not only the intermediate versions of a product, but also functional blocks. To trace communications in between. How it is better for making? Somebody has similar situations? How with them consult? What format of number is better for using for numbering of the intermediate versions and functional blocks?
