Use of Windchill Projects and the Defence Module (CDRL/SDRL)

Hi All

I am looking for some advice on best practice in terms of the use of Windchill Projects and the interaction with Packages. We are using the tool within a complex environment of who is able to access what data. 

From what i can tell there are two ways to make a document visible in a Project

  1. In the Product/Library, open the items and use "Send to Project"
  2. Within the Project, Create a Package (CDRL) and and relate the document (in Product/Library - Has not been shared) to the package.

Both options appear to work and will provide Project participants access to file that they can not normally see. My biggest concern with option 2 is that you can not see from the document record, the projects it has been shared to.

What do other users see as the advantages or disadvantages of both approaches.

Thanks for this

Shane
