Onecnc Xp series's NC manager is something worth raving about, one more time
Part way through a production run, my customer phones me and wants to add a machined feature to the part.
So, I modify the existing model, and add a process to machine the feature. Then, without any sweat, I generate a small, stand-alone program for machining the modification to all the previously completed parts. When I'm done, then I simply include the same process in with the rest of the main program, and generate a new program. Simple and elegant! I hand edit nothing
This way, the very same model gets updated with all the latest improvements, and the documentation is right there, so I never need to get confused trying to recall about cutting and pasting bits and pieces from all over.
I can even be interrupted in this procedure by the most dreaded device, the phone, and still easily pick up where I left off.

First you get good, then you get fast. Then grouchiness sets in.
