Edrawings drawing out of date

Our engineers are using Solidworks within PDM and our shop floor uses Edrawings.

But many times the edrawings do not reflect the checked in solidworks drawing,

Too many times the shop has worked off of outdated prints caused by edrawings not capable of doing a rebuild or get latest version, is there a way to have the Solidworks file automatically rebuilt when it is checked in so the shop floow can rest assure they are using the latest and greatest prints. We do not want to create more files such as PDF or edrawings files. We use solidworks and Edrawings should read the files fine.


Currrently the shop floor will call engineering to check out file in EPDM and Check back in, and this fixes the problem.
