I have been designing progressive dies in solids with multiple softwares for 22 years. Unfortunatly I continue to change how I approach and control parts, locations and sizes.
1) Top Down design-positon components by mates.
2) Bottom up design-position components and sizes by sketches on planes.
How many design by option 1 or option 2.
I use to use top down with mates using the strip layout as much as possible using Inventor just switched to SolidWorks and Logopress3 much easier with Logopress does a lot for you or simplifies it.
