Substitute dependencies in assembly

Substitute dependencies in assembly

I am looking for anyone with tips on finding and removing substitute
dependencies from an assembly.

The problem we have is with a 20 part assembly. When you check out the
assembly, you get approx 50 parts that are required, a lot of which are
substitute dependencies. The assembly is driven by a layout and initially I
thought there was still a reference to an old layout but that turned out to
not be the case.

-What is the definition of substitute dependency?
-When do they get created?
-Where can I "see" the dependencies? Parent/Child doesn't show
anything unusual.
-How do you get rid of them?

I have deleted some of the simplified reps and when deleting them it asks
about deleting substitute assemblies. I said yes to delete them but several
still exist.

Thank You Very Much!
