I would like to hear what others are doing as well with reference to Top-Down design. Sadly we are still in WF5 (AKA Creo/Element), thanks to our Windchill 9.1.
We have a supplier looking to do all the designs for us using top-down design. I know the concept is great for design intent and ease of changes. However, we are using Windchill and pretty complicated Change Manage process I think. My concern is how are people managing the top-down design within Windchill after it has been released? Do people typically break the relationship so that they can be managed independently? what about re-use? We use "show" vs "create" dimensions, how will this affect how we create our drawings?
