Resolve Multiple Materials

I've been getting user complaints regarding this pop up dialog.

I know its due to wave links in files, but when opening an assembly, we may get this prompt multiple times, for different parts, BUT the dialog never tells you which component it is asking about.  In the past, I have had users select the wrong material for a part, and we made scrap parts.

 

So i was talking with GTAC, and this setting came up, but the GTAC rep wasn't sure how "automatically" determined the material.  They are checking with development, so I thought I would ask here, incse anyone had experience with it?

Tools/Materials/Manage Materials will list all the local materials in the assembly. You can sort the list by component which should help to spot any duplicate materials.
