For manufacturers one use of the charts is to plot sales history frequency of various size sheds on the charts and use to determine an optimum section for a range of sheds. It is not economical to keep changing size of components, just because of minimum weight structure: doing so does not provide minimum cost structure. Set up times for roll forming, material change overs from C150 to C200 or variations in material thickness all add cost.
