The team I work in automates everything we can; updates, check-ins, builds and testing.

When a developer checks in a new version, the build PC's update to that version and build it. If the build succeeds, the version is flagged as building OK, the build PC then runs tests on the build version. If the tests succeed, the version is labelled good. Developers can then see all the versions they can update to and what state they're in.
