How to replace a component in SolidWorks Assembly?

An assembly and its components may go through many revisions during the course of a design cycle. This is especially true in a multi-user environment where several users can work on the individual parts and sub assemblies. A safe, efficient way to update the assembly is to replace the components as needed.
