You can link a numeric field to a parameter. A parameter is defined by name, type, unit, and a value or expression. A parameter can then be used to define the variables for a Design Study.

Once you define a parameter of a certain type, you can use it to define input of associated fields. For example, if you define Force1 as a force parameter, you can link it to a force input field instead of entering a numeric value. Changing the value of Force1, automatically changes the force linked to it.
