Unauthorized changes

Ok….I am reaching here…..but a number of our assembly drawings keep updating with Unauthorized changes. 


I understand that all it would take is for someone to make and Unauthorized change and check it in (whether that be, modification of a part, parameter or configuration).

But sometimes none of that has changed.  Case in point:  engineer1 had a copy of a large drawing / assembly stored on his local drive.  He makes modifications to the Assy / Drawing only to come back the next day with most of his work missing.


Just curious what you all do to prevent Unauthorized changes?  IS there a LOCKDOWN or FREEZE command.


Note:  We no longer use PDMworks (but when we did, we would get the same from time-to-time)

We’re using Agile Engineering Collaboration.




Thanks in advance for any advice you may offer.
