Change simplified representations by parameter

I would like to be able to change the simp rep assigned to parts & sub-assemblies programmatically based on certain conditions. This can by done by allowing a parameter to control the state of component in a simp rep.

Example: I have several simp reps defined in sub-assembly.

This sub-assembly is used in another assembly. I would like to assign a parameter to the component (part or assembly) in the simp rep definition.

By allowing the assignment of a parameter(allow feature & component parameters to be used as well) to the component I can write relations to set the value of the parameter based on whatever conditions I desire.

Each instance of a component needs the ability to assign a different parameter for the simp rep definition.

The value of parameters will equal predefined simp rep names. In the above example I might have the value of PARAMETER1 of FID 4102 equal "DPW70_INBOARD"

This enhancement request could reduce the work required and improve accuracy over manually redefining the simp reps for my users. Please give this request a high level of consideration.
