The various techniques and approaches that are available to model parts and create assemblies can affect performance. Your modeling approach determines the number of occurrences, complexity of geometry, constraint methods, and assembly creation.
The Top Down Design concept places critical information in a top-level assembly, then communicates that data to lower levels of the product structure.
