Unchecking Designate parameters

Two questions.

 

When the Designate box for a parameter is checked, it would mean that the parameter is visible in a PDM system. I understand this, but it doesn't apply to me as I don't use a PDM software.

 

The second purpose, according to CREO Fundamentals, is (and I quote) to "make the part level feature or geometry level designated parameters appear as a component in an assembly BOM".

I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean, because I believe this implies that you can't use undesignated parameters in a BOM table? Which can't be true, because I definitely have undesignated parameters linked in tables (in drawings for instance). Could someone shed some light on this?

 

And lastly, what advantages are there to NOT designate a parameter?

Parameters that are designated will automatically appear in the parameters list when creating a new object from that model.
