WTParts were not revised when model family table was revised

We have large family tables of similar components that were, at one time, associated to WTParts.  Over the years, inexperienced users who had intended to revise a single instance of the  family table inadvertently bumped the revision of the entire family table without including the WTParts.  Now we have large numbers of component models that have no WTParts associated with the latest version.  This situation results in the part structure for any WTPart assembly that uses the unassociated part, to not match the structure of the model. I could go into each WTPart number, find the version that the object is associated with, disassociate it, check it in, then associate it the latest version, check it in, then compare model structure to part structure, and then check in again.  Is there a faster way to fix this than using all of these steps? Is there a synchronization routine I can leverage?

Re: WTParts were not revised when model family table was revised

You can use WTPart creation utility.

https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS41163&art_lang=en&posno=1&q=WT%20Part%20c...

There are 7 steps from Search for the WTParts till deleting the temporary DB created.

You can run optional step add to baseline only if required
