Coming from a little experience, I wouldn't blame the engineer. The real people to blame for this type of cost cutting are the business execs who cant tell their rear end from an end wrench that the enineers have to ultimatley heed too.
The type of decision making they practice is a direct result of the buisness culture in the coorporation which is the result of the board of directors.

Wish I spoke Japanese sometimes.

Well I gotta agree with some of that too. Ford has had a big problem with repeat issues with overheating parts on model after model in the last 20 years. This after manufacturers have known for 50 years how to design parts that won't melt. Continually screwing with smaller and cheaper components while still moving same amounts of power or more around has lead to some of this. Electricity still uses same laws now as then, it takes a certain cross section of metal to carry power, especially at connections. When you flaunt that you get fires. In short, the bean counters should take some of it, the cars are made too cheap. When I rebuilt the resistor, I made sure it would never melt again by design just as I did with the bigger battery cable I made to replace the melted OEM one.
