We are completing a strategy about constructing our models with or without using configurations and eventually start using PDM workgroup
With that respect I would like to confirm if there is an issue PDM has with multi config parts/ assemblies
What i mean is I heard that if a part has been used in diff assemblies and each assembly uses diff Config of that part then when it comes to check in / out PDM it makes the part appear as same config in all assemblies wherever it has been used thus upsetting the design
Say part A has A and A-1 configs
Assembly B uses Config A of part A
Assembly C uses Config A-1 of part A
When checking in PDM will make the PART A appear as Config A in BOTH assemblies thus upsetting Assembly C!
Is it alos true that becasue of thsi reason Driveworks also recommends not using Configs
