recommended order of deployment for large deployments

I have a large app that is being pushed out into a production environment. It will live alongside many other existing apps. Is there a best practice order of deployment? I haven't been able to find one.

I'm looking for something like

Custom Object Fields -> Page Layouts -> Apex Classes -> VF Pages

Any help is appreciated!



The order you have given is pretty much what you need.


First you need to deploy the object and fields, which are the base of almost everything in the platform.

Secondly you can have a changeset for validation rules /workflows.

Then you can deploy classes and triggers and then VF pages., the VF pages will be using some of these classes.
