Why doesn't SW utilize hardware 100%?

Currently using 2020 SP3/PDM. A lot of software will show a bottleneck when monitoring the hardware during high workloads depending on what they leverage. Usually storage speed, CPU usage, or GPU usage are the big ones and one will always be pegged 100% during a high power workload. Solid works except for rendering (CPU) rarely spikes any of the hardware to 100% usage let alone sustain that usage. Why is this? 


We are starting to open assemblies with 10's thousands of parts in them and i'm spending hours a day opening, closing, and saving and seeing nothing maxed out on the system during these process. Why?
