We are implementing IBM RTC source control first time in our company and we are not sure about the standard process that must be followed in IBM RTC since it is very different from other SCM tools. Any Article or Document related to it would be very helpful.

You have Scrum based model or Formal process model

Like in the above posts there are some good points mentioned for SCM

In my experience what is good for one organization may not necessarily be good for others. 

You need to evaluate the system based on your organization goal and needs. This is even valid between different business divisions inside a same company

In the end the tool what is provided to developers should be easier to use in all terms and users should not spend hours to learn and hours to tweak the tool make it work for them

In our business unit we took the following approach:
  1. Use standard IBM Formal process model
  2. One stream approach per product
Some ideas:
  1. You can use one stream approach per product 
  2. You can use multi stream approach as mentioned here --
Hope this helps

Another great resource for getting started with IBM RTC source control is the Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management Knowledge Center.  See the following section of the Rational Team Concert online help:

 Thank you for responding, the articles are very helpful to get start with RTC.

Actually my query is related the process that can be used in our SDLC using RTC source control. Does IBM RTC have any standard process for source control or we have to create our own process?

Our organization basically wanted to follow the best practices recommended by IBM for source control.

I hope you got my point :)

Best Regards,
