Read/Write Assemblies

I've taken on a project at work recently converting out entire catalog of standard parts into a new 9-digit numerical system. Meanwhile, I've taken our standard truck bodies and saved them as new assemblies as well as the sub assemblies comprising the overall model. My engineering team uses these standard bodies as the jumping off point to create custom orders on a customer to customer basis. We've run into the problem many many times of forgetting to do a "save as" before we start adjusting the models, this obviously leads to our standard bodies being incorrect. Is there a way that I can take all of our standard bodies and read/write protect them so we can load them, adjust them as needed but not have the ability to save over the orginal files. This should force us to do the "save as", hopefully there will some prompt.

 

Thanks for taking your time reading this.
