Calculate value from assembly components?

Question asked by Garrette Saltzman on Oct 11, 2019

I have an assembly, we'll call it Assembly A, within this assembly I have several circuit cards, we'll call them Circuit Cards 1-3.  I need to calculate the total wattage of all circuit cards within my assembly, at the assembly level, plus 10%.  So if Card 1 is 1W and Card 2 is 2W and Card 3 is 3W, I need assembly to generate a property that says total wattage is 6.6W.  I'm not sure if the card wattage needs to be entered as a global variable or custom property and how to get the assembly to tabulate/calculate this information.  As a point of clarification, my circuit cards are merely "dumb solids" (no ECAD data, I have the verified wattage of my respective cards and would just be entering it in), so if the wattage and/or calculation would come through ECAD that option is not available to me.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
