How to improve speed when working with long routes?

Hello everybody,

We're having some problems with the design process when working with long routes (pipelines). Actually, they're not that long, for example max. 20 elements per pipeline, but it seems to go extremely slow. And the computer is crashing every now and then. The pipeline is a sub-assembly that is part of a quit large assembly. We are already working in the large assembly with simplified models of the main equipment (saved as a part, instead of an assembly).

First of all we would like to know the cause of this: why is piping demanding that much from the computer? The algorithm is very complicated? Many variables to solve?

By upgrading the hardware, how could we improve this? Is is above all a CPU related problem, or RAM?

Is there a certain working method that could help me improve the speed at which I can work with long pipelines?

Does anybody else had the same problem and has find a way to improve this?

Thanks in advance!
