Revision Control for Parts

We use PDMWorkGroups to control drawing that are both under development and issued.  Recently we have come across an interesting revision control issue.  I have seen it both years ago with paper (giving away my age).  There was an assembly that had several parts, one of which was a part rev A.  A second assembly was desgined which just a little different, but used a Rev B of the same part.  The first assembly always has to use part Rev A and the second assembly has to use part Rev B.  Will PDMWorkGroup understand the different and replace part Rev A with part Rev B?


I realize a better method would be to use different configurations.  Rev B could be the addition of the second configuration.  We could just change the configuration between the two assemblies.  Unfortunately it was not done that way.
