Ref ques… when is it best to make “is part of” true instead of false?

Wondering what the main advantages/disadvantages are of a reg ref table vs this setting.

This article provides some explanations of where you should use it.

However, a “Contract” entity would not be part of a “Customer” — it would have a regular Ref to the Customer. - References Between Tables References Between Tables
