PDM standard major and minor revisions?

I have created workflow with major and minor revisions.

So I start at A-01. If the change means that the parts are still interchangeable then I can go to A-02 and our guys can just order the new issue next time they buy.

If the parts are no longer interchangeable, or the existing parts need to be scrapped off, I go to B-01 and this triggers our guys to ask what to do with the existing stock, and what the the implications are. We are not such a big operation that we need any more of a system than that.


Maybe there is a way to handle this with one transition that is conditional and asks for a setting or something?

However if it has to be done like this, I cant figure out how to make the minor revision revert to initial state 01 when I increment the major revision letter change.

So taking the left hand route, for major revision B-06 would become C-01 (but I can only so far make it go to C-06).

The right hand route is easy, making B-06 become B-07 with the letter part unchanged.


Also I don't want anyone to leave a file in the temporary twin "update revision" states, but with PDM standard that seems to be the only way to do it. It would be great if I could make a warning pop up instructing the user to progress immediately through those to the Quotation state.
