Compare geometry autonomously, triggered by a workflow event?

I am trying to compare one version of a model to itself during a transition in PDM Professional 2017 - is this possible?  If the operation is relatively easy (which I am guessing it is not), I would like to deny further state changes if the geometry is different.


Basically our machine shop wants to add the camworks tool path data to the part files in SolidWorks PDM Professional - except we don't want to give them check out permissions to our files that reside in the Released state for fear of them making changes to the geometry (on purpose or not).  If I could verify the geometry has not changed I could allow them this access.


I know CAM functionality is being added to SolidWorks in 2018, I hope they have found a solution for these issues too...
