Using files in multiple assemblies

We use the same part in multiple assemblies some times and have had issues with this in our old explorer based system if a part changes and the user doesn't know it is used in another assembly.

When we were buying EPDM we were told that if we were modifying a part that was being used in another assembly that we would get a warning in the EPDM add in on the right side of the screen.  This warning would tell the user that the file needs to be looked into, they could then check the "where used" to see if that was the issue.

 

Our system is not doing this right now, I've gone back and forth with my VAR and not getting very far.

 

 

Example:

Assembly A uses part 1 and 2

Assembly B uses part 1 and 3

 

The problem comes in when we change part 1 in assembly B. This is the same part in assembly A so when they system prints a new drawing, it prints assembly A with the wrong version of the part.

 

 

How do you prevent this problem in your system?

 

I'm hoping I just have some settings wrong to prevent this.

Thanks

Dusty
