We have five applications to create this year, and a debate has arisen regarding how many SC's to create. Three of the applications relate to Operations; one to HR; one to IT. The three Operations applications are un-related to each other. When I read the documentation, it appears that we should be creating 5 SC's, one for each application, as none are related by functionality - they are NOT "functionally-related development objects". Development and implementation will take place at different times, as well.
So, the question: how do we determine when to create a new SC? What are the rules or guidelines to follow?
