BOM does not update measurements

I have (3) measurements....Thick (THK), Width (X-DIM), and Length (Y-DIM). In my model all the dimensions are in decimal, when i link a BOM to these parts the dimenions are still in decimal. I need them to be in fraction (as shown in picture). In order for the dimensions to change in the BOM from decimal to fraction I have to open the part, update, close, then update the drawings. This is a pain in the (you know what). I like to work in decimal within the model because its more precise. So dont tell me to change the model units to fraction, I dont want to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.
