TAC projects management best practice

Hello,
I would like to know best practice to manage our developpement and delivery with TIS.
Our architecture is following:
one repository TAC_DEV with 10 projects like P_BANK, P_LOGISTIC...
one repository TAC_PROD with 10 projects like P_BANK, P_LOGISTIC...
Our product cycle is:
- create a new job under TAC_DEV in P_BANK for example.
- once job has been tested we move job items from TAC_DEV( P_BANK) to TAC_PROD(P_BANK)
- and we export job script from TAC_PROD
At any time, our production team is able to modify a job under TAC_PROD and move the job modified to TAC_DEV.
When a job is modified we increase the version before.
The problem is following: we are not sure to have the same job version in following environnement:
- job scripts in production
- job in TAC_PROD
- job in TAC_DEV
We would like to put in place a process to avoid to modify the wrong job version and to merge job in each environnement.
We don't use the branch because it seems not useful with our working process company.
But maybe you have some different experience they can help us.
Thanks
Employee

Hi,
That's why we have the repository manager :-)
The purpose of the repository manager is exactly everything you define! It allows you to automatically migrate jobs from an environment to another, based on the status of the job. And you also have options to increase the version number of the job for example.

Hi,
we experienced some issues with exporting items from dev and importing items to prod so I would like to know : Is it possible to have both TAC instances (dev & prod) using the same SVN (if possible in readonly mode from the prod TAC)?
The development team could use the svn branch managment (trunk for dev and a specific "prod" branch for production) to deliver jobs. Then admins could use the production TAC to add new tasks in job conductor without any src items transportation...
