we are debating the advantages of design tables over usingindividual part files.  What prompted this debate were severalwe have encountered with configurations in design tables. Forexample:

-when opening assy's SW sometimes cannot find the rightconfiguration (i.e. it sometimes will use the 'last saved')
-searching for configurations  is not as straightforward
- we have run into  cases where we have duplicate parts indesign tables and individual parts  

I would like to post this on this group to see if you had similardiscussions and if you think design  tables or individualpart-files were 'the way to go' for consumable hardware such asscrews and washers ? 

Thanks for your input.
