SCM consist for following branch.

1. Configuration Management aks version control management
Tools – SVN, Perforce, GIT, Clearcase CVS etc

2. Build Management
Tools – Jenkins, Anthillpro, Bamboo etc

3. Release Management aka deployment management
Tool – Cruise and many in-house tools

4. Packaging Management aka Installer
Tools: Wise, InstallSheild, InstallAnywhere etc…

There are various tools for each one of them. Important things is that you need to be aware of concept of each one of them. also, you need to focus
on scripting for various purpose such as ant, perl, python, shell, maven, make etc.

Small project has all mixed profile dedicated to one engineer but big and complex project has individual engineer assigned for each task. there are many books and web reference you can find over to web to know more about it.
