Can we really use permission set groups?

Hi all,

we are analyzing the use of permission groups for two teams, which don't have too many differences. We have differences in page layouts. Team A can see some fields on a Case page layout, that are not needed for Team B.
There are permission which are not needed for team B and needed in team A. Besides, Team A needs access to some objects, that Team B doesn't need.
Unfortunately permission set groups don't give you the possibility to assign page layouts, compact layouts, record pages which are assigned on the profile level.
If we use permission set groups how can we achieve a connection with such components?.
The another question is if we would need two permission  set groups as we have team A and team B.

Hi Laura,

Use a permission set group to bundle permission sets based on logical user groups and the tasks users perform.

Hi Vinay, I can not mark your answer as best, as you are only sending me links but you are not helping further if you don't tell from your experience.
You are only telling me what I already know.
So I hope someone with experience can assess me here.
