Sharing of Sub-Assemblies in EPDM

OK folks, I need some help here. Everything I am finding regarding the sharing of assemblies and sub-assemblies within EPDM indicates there are problems. So far, I know I can share component models between projects in EPDM but the sharing of assemblies is considered a No-No. The only "work around" I have found has been to give new part numbers to identical assemblies. I can see this rapidly turning into quite a quagmire very quickly. Has anyone on the forums had this type of issue? The majority of our projects use common sub-assemblies assembled with other mostly common sub-assemblies, with new assemblies stuck in the mix to create the top level product. We are a protoype shop so this is the norm for us. Any input, direction, commiseration, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...
