How do you handle revisions

Hi all,

 

Looking to get a few opinions on this.

 

Example:

I have a model PG4-1 (for example) and an associated assembly drawing. I then get asked to change a certain part of the model. This what I currently do.

 

Open up the model and do a File - Pack and Go and change the Save to name as PG4-1_01 (underscore 01 is reference to Rev 1) and do the same for associated drawing.

This works fine.

 

But what happens if I am asked just to change information on the drawing only (if extra notes are required etc).

At present I am still doing a Pack and Go and renaming everything as _02. which means the model is at Rev2 but hasn't been changed only the drawing

 

Is this still the correct way to do this or can you have two drawings referencing the same model? With the model at rev 01 and the drawings at rev 01 (original ) and Rev 02 (new).

 

Thanks
