If you're working in Intralink - rename the part.

If you're not using Intralink - open both the part & drawing in Pro/E. Activate the part, and File | Rename - the drawing will also update.
Open the drawing file so it is memory, now open the part file and rename it. Then save the drawing file. You have to have the drawing file in memory in order for the drawing/part association to update properly.
you need to save your drawing before closing your session.. or else you will in trouble in your next session..
if your part is used into an assembly you need to open in same session that part, it's drawing and the assembly where is used, rename the part and save the .drw, .prt and .asm
