Reduction in thickness of (rolled) steel sheet

I assume that this is one of a list of measures that will be or have been taken in order to reduce the weight and cost of a vehicle, or something similar.

If so, what they are presumably describing is a reduction in the thickness of the steel sheet used to make the panels of the vehicle. I therefore suggest "Reduction in thickness of steel sheet", but you may need to revise this depending on the context.

The attached reference refers to "thin rolled steel", so I am including "(rolled)" in the translation. However I personally don't think it is necessary to include "rolled" here as most if not all steel sheet is rolled.
