In general, priorities are managed using the wvs.properties settings, especially including publish.publishqueue.priorities. (many properties).
Refer also to this CS on it (not much info here): CS289350
Key is to use the properties / filter method on "Document Category" which then can be used to select Drawing about other EPMDocument Categories. Don't use the CAD Doc Number or other attributes - has to be Document Category.
Alternatively, you can consider to use client-side viewable generation for CATIA drawings. You can turn it on from wgmclient.ini and get 3 types of viewable format for CATIA drawings. This capability was introduced in Windchill 11.1.M020,
More information is available in Generating Client Viewable (ptc.com)
@YodaKim, thanks for the hint. We'll investigate this option.
WVS offers rich capabilities to enhance existing queuing and prioritizing principles with your own logic. As @MikeLockwood pointed out, with is done by implementing your own publish.publishqueue.priorities.filtermethod. Such kind of customizations are usually very small and easy to implement. A good starting would be CS132318 .
