Automate updating published image service?

I have three mosaic datasets that I've added into a newly created mosaic dataset. 

I periodically have to update "MDS_Ettiene_2000" by adding additional image tiles to the mosaic dataset. Currently I'm having to stop the image service, add the tiles to the original "MDS_Ettiene_2000" mosaic dataset, remove it from the grouped mosaic dataset and re add it once I've added the new images, rebuild the overviews and finally republish the image service.

Can anyone suggest a better workflow that will allow me to automate (Python Module) the republishing of the following image service each time I need to add additional image tiles.

Hi Peter

You should use Derived Mosaic where you add the tiles of the three mosaic into one mosaic and not as a single mosaid.
