I want to optimize my structure using simulation optimization and have my fillet weld size as a variable. However, I don't see it as an option in my variable table, there are only my constraints. Is there a way to have my fillet weld size (bisector thickness, circled in red) to my assembly's variable table?

I don't know an elegant solution then this one
I would create a dimension like shown in the following screenshot and I have to populate this new Variable to be able to use it later:
and thank you for the reply.
Unfortunately, your advice didn't work. The dimension of the weld showed up in the variable table, but since that PMI is not driving dimension (red number) but a purple one, I can't change the weld size by editing the number value in that PMI dimension.
Any other ideas?
It seems that that particular value neither populates the variable table nor is it able to accept variable input.
I suggest modeling weld beam (assy or part level) and it will contain variables.
