  1. Part A should be attached to part B while part C remains attached to part D.
  2. Part A should be attached to part B with part C (being) attached to part D.

I know "with" has a usage similar to that of "while", but unsure how they differ. For the above two sentences I created, I would like to know which is correct.

Sentence 2 is not correct unless you remove the parentheses around 'being.'

With that said, Part A should be attached to part B, while part C remains attached to part D and Part A should be attached to part B, with part C being attached to part D mean the same thing.

Q. Part A should be attached to part B while part C remains attached to part D.

Part A should be attached to part B with part C (being) attached to part D.

Both are correct and you do not need to include (being)

Although both sentences have a different meaning

Part A should be attached to part B while part C remains attached to part D

means A & B need to be put together (assembled) but C & D are already assembled

Part A should be attached to part B with part C (being) attached to part D.

means A & B need to be put together and C & D need to be put together if not already assembled
