Manage links in assembly

Manage links in assembly

(OP)
Hello,

I have an assembly that contains parts, where i have made some links between then.

For example I have a metal stamping die, where I have the main surface of the die in strip layout, and I copy that surface to the stamping die to draw it.
Now I have the need to replace that surface with a new one. While I was drawing the tool other collegue was finishing the details of that surface (spring back compensatiom, some drawbeads, some radius adjustaments...) Now i need to import the new surface and replace with the old one. Do I have the need to go in every single part that I copied that surface and make a new link, or there is an easy way to manage that?

I would like to do something similar to this, but instead open a file from alias, open a step file
