Using Exploded Views to Create Drawing Views for Manuals

I am creating a manual to guide construction crews to assemble a material handling auger.  The complete SW assembly has over 100 parts and that number does not include any fasteners. I plan to use exploded views in SW and then to use SW Drawing to show the exploded view with the parts called out.  These drawing views will then be inserted into a manual.  My question is directed to those who use SW to create manual views and no we do not have SW Composer. 


Question:  Is it better to explode the entire SW assembly and then to try to create small views in SW Drawing from the large assembly or is it easier to create smaller sub assemblies of the large assembly from which exploded views are created?
