The best method to define content models

Dear All,


Working on an Alfresco implementation to manage documentation related to projects. So far collected all the documents created during the life of a project. These documents are organized by teams and by project phases. The global list had been checked with the team leaders and seems I have a 'final' list of appr. 200 different documents.


Took the list and groupped the documents into 4 main groups: Corporate, Project, Administrative, Engineering and removed the duplicates. The list got a bit more clear but still far from a content model defintion.


Wondering what is the best method to define content models.Example: Have a document 'Minutes of Meeting' which can be considered a type, however this document should behave according which teams generates and at which phase. In this case, do I need to define one type for each MoM? or create a global one?


My goal would be to reduce the content type list to appr. 15-20 different types.


How do you tackle the definition?


Your inputs are appreciated,
