Sometimes we come across scenario in which we want to save a large assembly (CATProduct) consisting of many parts into one single part (CATPart).  A typical example would be development of Body Side of Car parts keeping all the Packaging Data like Engine, Radiator, battery etc in a single CATPart for reference. Every time it is pain to open complete Product especially when it is frozen and is needed only for reference while designing surrounding parts.
