Getting Legacy Data Assigned to Correct Data Card

I am currently bringing files into EPDM from multiple sources (Pro-E, pdf, cdr, doc(x), etc.). I originally created data cards for CAD and DOC but, a large portion of the legacy drawings are scanned images in pdf format. This makes things interesting because pdf's are also used for specifications, documents, etc. It seems to be an either/ or scenario getting the particular documents assigned ot the correct data card. Right now, I am manually pulling in files to test data cards and workflows before we go live. Has anyone else out there run into this situation and/or does anyone have suggestions how to proceed? I need the drawing pdfs to go to the CAD card and the doc pdfs to go to the doc card (or spec card, or MSDS card). If I can "skin this cat" I can get the files into the correct workflows.

 

Thanks,
