Enterprise PDM and Parts Derived from Bodies in Other Parts

SW and EPDM gurus,


I use bodies in my parts a lot.  Enterprise is fairly new to us so I was curious what strategies or best practices for handling these files are used, what works, what doesn't...  I'll save a body out to a part and that part is what get's tooled / manufactured so it get's a part number, drawing, etc.  But to be able to make future revisions it needs the parent file.  I don't give a part number to that part but I do check it in.  Should it get a "released" revision number and "released" status?  I'm not sure what to do with this thing.  I would like it to be obvious to other users that this part is derived from another part.  Make sense?  Your thoughts are appreciated.
