Create controllers for parts using reference geometry?

Hello All,


I was wondering if it is possible in Solidworks to use reference geometry on a part to manipulate the piece? So essentially if this was a parent child relation the axis or reference geometry would be the parent and the part would be the child. My idea is that if I created a part in Solidoworks and it had to be x inches tall, instead of clicking on the part and then edit feature you could just adjust the height by moving the reference geometry point. Or the end goal being I would write an equation that would factor in the reference points and by plugging in the numerical value it would automatically reflect in the build window. I hope this question isn't too confusing and any information would be a great start.
