Assembly Design Table

Hey guys,


I'm new to design tables.  I'm working with one now that I want to basically build an assembly for me.  I think the way it should work is this way.  (I am using sheet metal panels to form walls for all practical purposes)


Let's say I want to have an option to make a  7'6" wide x 10' tall wall made from (3) 30"wx120"tall panels, or i can make a 8'wide by 10' tall wall made from (4) 24"wx120"tall panels. 


What I did was insert both the 30" and 24" panels and mated them to the origin.  Then I did a linear component array for both of them.  I have (3) 30" panels interferring with (4) 24" panels all connected together at this point.  Now I personally can toggle the suppression state of the parts and linear component arrays to give me what i want.  However, when trying to create a design table, I cannot seem to figure out if there is a way to suppress whole components and linear arrays from a design table.  I can adjust the linear number of panels and i can adjust how far between each part in the array.  Any help would be much appreciated. 


Basically, my ultimate goal with design tables is I want the ability to have a design table ask how long and tall I want my wall to be and be able to figure out if it needs 30" panels or 24" panels and then assembly it for me.  Then be able to add a roof depending on how far apart the walls are.  Any ideas on the ultimate goal are much appreciated as well.
