This is something that I teach all my delegates on an Inventor new users course. Not just parameters, but the ability to manipulate parameters to give us usable results. An example of this is the ability to calculate the number of fixing holes needed to span across a piece of ducting or when to add an extra support after a certain length is reached.
This really is such a useful equation and can be manipulated to give different results depending on the desired output. It is especially useful when patterns are concerned but doesn’t limit itself to just that.
