I'm afraid I already know the answer to this, but there may be a simpler way, so I'll ask.
When we perform a clerical correction on a part, it is not up-revved nor given a new P/N, but the system creates one or more new versions to maintain the file history. When that happens, the references held by any assy or sub-assy that uses the part are no longer current - they need to be changed to point to the new released version. Then, any assy or sub-assy that uses that assy also must be updated... all the way up the tree.
I don't see any way around doing all this the tedious, manual way. Does anybody have a suggestion for automating this in some way, or otherwise reducing the grunt work that it causes?
