EPDM: Advice or best practice to manage components technical spec

we are migrating from 2d design with autocad and a filesystem based archiving to 3d with solidworks and EPDM.


I'm here to ask for a best practice for technical specification management.

For example: we use in our design some cogeneration motors. These motors have the 3D model (basic one...becouse we buy them) that we use only for displacement but they come with a lot a specs, different for every orders. Is virtually impossibile to have to buy 2 motors with the same specs from our supplier.


Now in 2D Autocad we write down on a module in autocad all the different specs. The base module have all the options and we simply delete the ones we don't need.

I would like to implement something more reliable with solidworks EPDM... Any hint for the road to take??


Thank you
