Assembly Visualization should be a good tool for chasing down problems with assembly files, particularly fat assemblies that take forever to load or change. It would be handy to go to an engineer with actual data and say his component is bringing down the assembly. The more I look into SW-Rebuild Time, though, the less handy it seems. I don't even know what it means.
I suspect it is a value saved in the component file, showing how long it would take to rebuild that file you had it open and active. How relevant is that to an assembly? I could model the space shuttle and then delete it all. The rebuild time would be big, but the impact to the assembly would be small. If I tried to use SW-Rebuild Time as argument for better modeling, it'd have a big hole in it.
Anyone know if SW-Rebuild Time is actually a component property?
