J S Buchan: 94. Some Considerations in Establishing and Maintaining a Weight Control Program. In: 13th National Conference, Baltimore, Maryland, May 10-13, pp. 12, Society of Allied Weight Engineers, Inc., Baltimore, Maryland, 1954.

 

Abstract

The success of any weight control program is contingent upon the willingness of everyone concerned with the development of an airplane design to accept responsibility for weight control. If individuals, or groups of individuals, fail to accept this responsibility, it is almost impossible to achieve the desired light weight design. It therefore becomes the prime responsibility of the Weight Control Engineer to develop procedures that will stimulate a weight consciousness in other Engineers. This paper defines the essential elements of control, which are:
(1) The definition of a goal.
(2) Sensing Device- That which is necessary to provide a signal when conditions deviate beyond the tolerance permitted.
(3) Means of initiating corrective action to attain a goal.
