Resizing all dimensions in a part model

Hello All,

 

I am currently being instructed to take a current model that I have and re-scale the entire model.  The issue is that they do not want us to simply add a feature to scale the part at the end of the model tree but instead have all the values of all the sketch entities and feature parameters adjust all simultaneously so when rolling back the model to view features all the values correlate properly to the final model.  I could do all of this manually of course but the part has a lot of features and this would not only be long and tedious but also prone to human error.

 

Unfortunately without just scaling the entire model or setting up a crazy Equation/Macro into the model that doesn't currently exist I have no idea how to quickly accomplish this feat in SolidWorks.  I know in other programs you could change your units and it would give you the option to either keep values or keep sizes and you could setup a custom unit that would manipulate the model to adjust by the scale factor and then switch back keeping sizes rather than number values but I don't see this option in SolidWorks.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
