Assembly controlled part design table

No way I can see to do it that way. Need an enhancement to override a parts dimension from an assy, UG does this. I think Inventor can do this as well with it's adaptive feature by making the length dimension adaptive or something like that. Then the assy can stretch that value based on what it's mated to. Wonder what happens when you need two instances at different lengths in your assy? UG can only deal with one instance.
