I've floundered with this for years. Our users have quite a few occurrences of a harness being used multiple times in one assembly, or in different assemblies. We've never found a good solution and just create different harnesses for each location. Have you (or anyone) had success using top-down design methods for this, or any other good ideas?

I have a customer who does not have a unique problem. Take for example a 29
inch cable harness that has been submitted to the database and is signed off
on. The problem is that I need to utilize that same harness in many
different locations on my assembly. I have an idea to use top down design
then simply retrieve the harness in hopes that it will update the connectors
of the harness in those multiple configurations. I was thinking of locking
the length with Fix. Using WF4.0 at the moment. Has anyone dealt with
this in Pro/CABLE and would you care to elaborate?
