Designing Simple Progressive Dies

I have been designing some simple progressive dies with SolidWorks alone. I have been using the top down approach an an assembly. I started with a strip layout and went from there. Unfortunately, the design is not very flexible. If there is even a slight change in the part or strip layout it is very cumbersome to go through each component and modify them. I have tried to mate everything to an original sketch of the strip layout, but that turned into a mess. Would a layout sketch or layout feature work well in this case?
