I am looking for ways to add some automation to my team's workflow. At any given time there are multiple people working on multiple projects and they switch from project to project frequently. We use SVN as our config repo and it works well with the practices that we have. We are also using Jira and have access to automated build servers. These build servers are mainly used by our software team to run automated compile/build tests to ensure complete check-ins. I was wondering if there is something similar that we can do on SolidWorks models. Ideally, once someone checks in a SolidWorks file, the build server would update the repo and open the top-most assembly or assemblies in that project and log any build errors. These errors would be posted to the Jira ticket for correction. This would cut down on engineers checking in incomplete assemblies where the referenced models are stored locally and not checked in.
I'm not finding any clear way to automatically start SolidWorks and save off the list of build errors that you get when opening the model.

Leading manufacturers are aligning their people, processes, and tools from initial product ideation through to field service. They do so by providing access to product and enterprise data in the context of each personâ€™s domain expertise. However, it can be complicated and costly to unite engineering with the factory and supply chain. Download Now

Itâ€™s easy to fall in love with your own CAD design on the computer screen, but itâ€™s how everything fits together off the screen that really matters. Beyond the design, products need to solve real-life problems or provide huge benefits that genuinely merit separating money from wallets. Download Now
