Putting It All Together
Using the bottom up design approach, you incorporate features and parts of a complex design into assemblies and subassemblies, and ultimately into the master assembly. If you work in a top down direction, you break down a master assembly into subassemblies, parts, and features.
Whichever design approach you use, your task is to properly capture the design intent to provide some level of flexibility. The more flexibility that you built into your models, the fewer issues that will arise as you change the design during the product life cycle. Remember that each Creo model is a careful synthesis of physical and intellectual design.
