A Kalitinsky: 539. Weight Control From Concept to Delivery. 1966.



Weight growth is the single problem, with which every Weight Engineer – sooner or later – must come to grips. In a gathering such as this, it undoubtedly receives more attention than all other general topics combined and well it should. Broadly speaking, there are only two types of weight growth; that which is necessary, and that which is not. The former, characterized by design changes made to improve the product, is something we must allow for in the original weight estimate. It is like sex; it is here to stay and we might as well make the best of it. The latter is like a disease; finding a cure for it is much simpler if you know the cause. I propose to discuss a cure for undesireable weight growth – it is called Weight Control.
