Rational Team Concert has the work item as a fundamental mechanism to track, plan, and assign development tasks. A work item provides a way to track the progress, plan the releases, and monitor system health. Work items are, for example, bugs, enhancements, and tasks with varied priorities and generally attached to a specific release. Rational Team Concert inherently supports the connection between the work item and source code. Thus, as a developer, you can go to work items from source code and vice versa.
