C G Peterson: 26. Weight Control Organization for Manufacturers. 1943.



The question of how weight can best be controlled presents itself with the inception of each new design. In most companies today the answer lays in routine procedure but the question is nevertheless present. As far back as 1928 we have records which reveal the serious consideration given to programs. These procedures varied considerab1y among the companies but as more experience was gained there was an unconscious trend toward a common system which is based on sold fundamentals. This procedure is adhered to more or less persistently from project to project but is tempered with refinements as their advisability becomes apparent.
The purpose of the procedure is to control the weight of the project so that it will not exceed, upon completion, the estimate included in the original specification.
