I think this is much a matter of the baker's judgement.  I was not going to answer because I thought someone from the commercial area might be better to answer.  However, for what it is worth, here are my suggestions.

Loaf panned in a 5" x 8" pan -- 34 oz. (960 g)

Kaiser rolls -- 2.5 to 3.8 oz. (70 - 105 g)

dinner rolls -- 1.5 oz. (42 g)

baguette -- 10.5 oz. (300 g

Ford  -- 2912 oz. (82,553 g)
