Filters and Parameters in tableau have 2 totally different purposes - the function that you are describing sounds like you want the user to input a value and then you use that value in a calculation to change the value in a different measure - that would be a parameter - they are the means that a user can input a single value into table (they are static - are global apply to the entire workbook and remain constant till change manually by the user 0
You would back up the parameter with a calculation that might look like Sum(volume) - [Parameter value]
Filters are used to limit the range of a dimension (or measure) that is presented in the view - you could say just show me all values greater than parameter valuebut it would not change the value
