Keeping AF models in regular sync

What is the recommended way of keeping two AF models in sync?


What I want to achieve is to have a stable AF model controlled by the IT department. We will use this as the basis for any applications built on top of PI so we need tight control on changes to make sure that no-one breaks our applications inadvertently.


However IT will not be responsible for updating the AF model as new signals comes in, are renamed or any other changes required to the models. So at regular intervals I want to sync the model maintained by the business users to the model controlled by IT. The model controlled by IT will not be changed except for these updates so that model can be wiped completely between each sync if neccessary


I know about the import/export functionality using XML, but I do not know if that works for more than a one time import. Also there might be other tools I can use to achieve the same thing and I would like to know if there is any recommended practice for it.
