Configuration and derived configuration nomenclature

Question asked by Justin Binkley on Jun 20, 2008
I have a question pertaining to duplicate files names and there effects on a future PDM system such as PDMworks. For instance I have two seperate sldprt files. Within both of these sldprt files there are configurations of each that have the same configuration name. Will a PDM system see the configuration as an own files rather than a file inside the generic sldpart file making duplicate file naming an issue?

It can also be view as this:

I have sldprt files A & B. Within part A I have a config named 1. IWithin part B I have a config named 1. Is this possible and if so it is a bad practice?

I did find out you cannot have derived config. of the same name within the individual generic sldprt file. Wish you could. see below for some futher explination.
