This paper discusses the past, present, and future of desk top computing in relation to the weight engineer.
Desktop computers are shown to be convenient and economical when used to:
* Perform parametric studies
Cost savings are discussed for a typical weight engineering problem: “Passenger Loading Studies.” Use of a desk top computer with an X-Y plotter resulted in a 93-percent savings in man-hours over a hand-plotted method.
