Saving As a Copy or Pack and Go??

We have very often new large projects based on the oldest one. Basically it is very similar constellation of the parts in a large assembly, some of them has the same function, but very different shape, dimensions vary and each project has very individual features. To start, my colleagues Save As a Copy old project under new name and start rebuilding it to the new form. I am not friend of this procedure (you just can't track all consequences, which group of the different people had done in a past), I prefer Pack and Go. Unfortunately, when using Workgroup PDM, with this feature you are loosing connection to the design library. What I have to do, after "packing", load all Design Library parts again (motors, rails, valves etc...).

Has anybody experienced something similar? Any suggestions? By the way, using configurations is not a solution for many reasons. Each project is unique. Thank you.
