Question about BOM using different configurations

I have a question concerning the automatic generation of the bill of materials.


I have a part, which has 2 configurations. the second configuration is solely a simplified version of the first one. the first, detailed configuration has a drawing with the same name. 

But here's the problem. i have used this part in a larger assembly and want to use the simplified configuration to speed up my model. but if i now want to make a drawing from the larger assembly, the BOM also displays the second configuration. 


Can i somehow display the first configuration in the bill of materials or at least display the drawing number of the first configuration ?

Or does anyone have another trick to speed up large assemblies ?


Thank you in advance !
