I use a "file architecture" which has served me rather well over the  
years. I have attached the zip of a minimal example. In 1-Instance1,  
you can open and typeset chapter 1, 2 or I = 1+2 either from the  
Contents folder or the Controls folder. In the case of ancillaries,  
the separation of contents and controls becomes extremely handy. See <http://www.freemathtexts.org/AncillariesManagement/Downloads.php
