Control Cable Assemblies

I have not used the routing add-in (other than tutorial), and have not yet decided how to best approach this situation. What is the best method for modeling these cables (see attached) and sharing the files with other SW user that does not have the routed systems add-in?

I need the cable assembly to be referenced in the drawing BOM, and if possible, lengthen or shorten in the assembly as each lever is moved. Can a reference be added from the cable end to the hole in the lever, as the cable is part of the assembly shown in green? Because each lever moves independently, will this require separate cable assemblies in SW even though the purchased part number is the same for each cable?

I would be interested in knowing how others have solved similar problems.
