I have been using Solidworks 2009 PDM for a number of months, storing data during development.  The company that I work for (a startup) has recently adopted some standards regading revision levels and I would like to change the revision scheme under PDM to these new standards.

 

What things should I be concerned about, and what actions should I take to make this transition as smooth as possible?

 

===============================================================

 

The current revision scheme has a list of PRIMARY revisions like this:

 

X1

X2

X3

......

X99

A

B

C

D        (Skipping O I Q X Z)

E

....

Y

AA

BB

.....

YY

 

=====================================

 

I would like to change it to

 

PRIMARY LIST                     SECONDARY LIST          

X                                                00

A                                                01

B                                                02

C                                                .......

D                                                99

...

Y
