This working group presented to PTC a white paper on LiveWorx 2018 that talks about "Single Architecture for all Creo dimensions".
This idea was discussed with PTC representatives, including myself, the Product manager of this area at PTC.
During the discussion, PTC noted that automatic collection of driving dimensions as references might be tricky and in some cases it might be prone for errors or not getting the design intent.
PTC suggested that it would be better to focus on enhancements that will allow easier collection of references instead.
A Consensus was reached and the majority agreed to that solution."
