Identifying weight reduction ideas is not difficult in the engineering world today, the difficulty becomes the implementation of those weight reduction ideas. Teams generate long lists of weight reduction roadmap ideas, but never have time to deliver on the ideas. Engineers today are too busy to run dual path programs; roadmap ideas sit on an opportunities list until they run out of time and then fall off the list.

This paper will describe a Weight Reduction Workshop process implemented at Ford Motor Company that drives weight reduction ideas into program assumptions.
