Revision Mechanism - Custom Parts and Drawings - [Configuration or Customization ?]

Hello Experts,

 

Customer follows below revision pattern in their environment.

 

Custom Parts & Drawings -

 

1) A1 to A50(max limit) - DEV revision

    A - PROD revision.

 

2) B1 to B50(max limit) - DEV rev

     B - PROD rev.

.

.

.

etc.,

 

So, when the Drawing is revised, the respective parts are revised based on Drawing rev pattern. Please view the attached Table Snapshot.

 

Details:

1) Drawing revision advances at every design change.
2) Part revision advances when change is applied to that part.
3) Drawing and part revision can be different.
4) Drawing revision will always be >= Part revision.
5) Drawing revision never skips any revision letter.

 

 

Could you guide if this logic can be done through configuration or customization is required ?

 

 

Thanks!

I don't think you can force the drawing revision letter to be higher than or equal to the highest part revision through OOTB configuration 

 

The users will also manually have to select the new revision rules when revising parts / drawings. B1 -> B50 is automatic but switch to B is manual. Then switch to C1 is manual as well
