This is how I see assembly in SolidWorks:
In assemby mode you add parts and mates between them- mainly for making 2d or check collisions.
When you want make a movie showing how your machine works - you should use motion study and animation option.

And If you want make a gravity simulation or other contact between elements you should use motion study- BASIC MOTION option. (of course you might make a movie of this)
And this tutorial is about BASIC motion elementry options.
