Data Management and CNC data

When you hand off SolidWorks models to your internal machine shop, how does the shop handle the file management? Do they put their CAM files in the vault? What about g-code? Do they change the names of the original solidworks files? Are they just doing manual file management of their own data?

 

I'm just curious about CAM/g-code data and file management in general. I'm guessing that even if the design department is using PDM, the machine shop is still in the stone age, and is using Windows Explorer.
