Allow Parts to Inherit Default Representations of their Associated Described By Documents/Drawings

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.
I work in a Defense company and I support users relating to Creo and Publishing.

Our stakeholders are the users within the business.


2. What version of Windchill are you currently running?
12.0.2.7

3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.
Representation Files do not get properly flowed through from Described By Documents/Drawings to their corresponding Part.
