Editing routes - syncing chainage to original layer

I have setup simple linear referencing on a pipes layer by feeding in a line featureclass that contained start/end chainage values.  This create a M aware routes layer.  All the data is loaded into an Oracle Enterprise GDB.


This is being used in IBM Maximo.


Maximo is conifgured to pull its chainage values from the original attributes in the line featureclass.  The route layer (pipes), is M aware, but does not contain the original start/end chainage values, and I think this is by design.


So the problem is if I make changes to the route layer, Maximo still refers to the old chainage values in the original featureclass.


According to the Maximo documentation:

You need to keep the route feature class in sync with the original feature class configured in Maximo Spatial Asset Management. You must define a process to recreate it periodically.

If a route layer changes, how can I automate updating the original Start/End chainage values? (which Maximo is dependent on).



I am not using Roads & Highways or the Gas Pipeline model.  Just plain old linear referencing.
