Can I control components' configuration by a global variable?

I'm making a sliding door assembly, the opening width can be specified by increment of 1mm.

Some components such as the glass panel depends directly on the opening size,

while components such as tracks can cover a range, e.g. 2000mm track for opening of 900-1000mm, 2200mm track for opening of 1000-1100mm and so on...


So, is it possible to set up my model so that i can control everything (Glass size, track length configuration, etc) by one variable (my opening width)?

Or do I have to setup multiple configurations in my parent assembly and choose manually, and then enter my opening width as a separate variable?


Thanks for your help.
