Paper Title:
Mass Decompounding and Vehicle Lightweighting
  Abstract

Although mass reduction can be associated with additional costs, a decision to lightweight a structural subsystem may, depending on when in the vehicle development process the decision is taken, result in secondary (additional) mass savings such that the value of lightweighting is substantially increased. This paper overviews a method to estimate the potential for secondary mass savings in different vehicle subsystems. We close by describing current research efforts aimed at developing new lightweight product solutions for both body and powertrain applications along with commensurate manufacturing processes.
