Combining multiple Project 2003 files

I am currently using Project 2003 Professional (without Enterprise server or Sharepoint).

I need to manage about 6 different projects with identicle phases. Although some tasks within each project may differ slightly, the overall SDLC phases (Concept, Design, Built, Test, Implement) are the same.

Because the deliverable dates can vary by quite a bit for each project, I would prefer NOT to track these projects in one project plan. Rather, I would prefer to build individual project plans and import them into one master project plan.

The dilemma I have is that, as far as I know, you can only import "sub" projects into a given task line. Another words, what I want to do is that in the master project plan, I want to define the five SDLC phases I mentioned earlier. Then somehow import the project plans so that each SDLC phases from the projects correspond to the master project plan.

Is this do-able? Are there any other ways? My main purpose is to help the project managers manage their own mini projects unfettered, but I want to have a quick "dashboard" method of gathering overall status.
