Yup imagine how in something really complex and weight-critical like a modern commercial aircraft, every little item just compounds. One of the things I appreciated about working for McDonnell Douglas (Douglas Aircraft in Long Beach) back when, was being on a project team where you really got a sense from the inside of how something you did (beefing up a fitting, say, for strength) had an effect on EVERYTHING else, like weights and balance, design, loads, human factors/safety, the buyers, the produceability people, etc. So there was this continual feedback loop going on, as the project got refined. For literally, about three years !
