Simple single place to edit two variables that drive a mate and configuration

I have two things that I want to drive from a single simple place to enter the value of two variables.


What I want to drive:

A component configuration.

A distance mate distance


The configurations are named like this: 17 inch, 17.25 inch, 17.5 inch, etc...


Sheet width would be taken and some simple math would be done to drive a mate distance. This I have figured out by using Equations.


For depth I need to use a number and drive the configuration of the component. The component has about 75 configurations. I only want to have one configuration for the top level assembly. I have determined that a person could edit a design table but this is kinda clumsy. I am hoping for a way to use Equations or Custom Property for this.


Any ideas?
