The principles of sensitivity analysis are carefully described and suitable methods for approaching many types of problems are given.

The book introduces the modeller to the entire casual assessment chain, from data to predictions, whilst explaining the impact of source uncertainties and framing assumptions.5/5(1). What-If Calculation: Calculations for testing a financial model using different assumptions and scenarios.

What-if`calculations enable the forecaster to check the variance in end results for a Author: Will Kenton. Sensitivity analysis allows him to determine what level of accuracy is necessary for a parameter to make the model sufficiently useful and valid.

If the tests reveal that the model is insensitive, then it may be possible to use an estimate rather than a value with greater precision. Sensitivity analysis can also indicate which parameter values areFile Size: KB.

The Wiley Paperback Series makes valuable content more accessible to a new generation of statisticians, mathematicians and scientists. Sensitivity analysis is used to ascertain how a given model output depends upon the input parameters. This is an important method for checking the quality of a given model, as well as a powerful tool for checking the robustness and reliability of its analysis.

This chapter discusses the role of sensitivity analysis in engineering problems. The domain of application of sensitivity analysis is very large.

Sensitivity functions carry very valuable information for the synthesis of automatic control by: 1. Uncertainty and sensitivity analysis Overview Uncertainty analyses involve the propagation of uncertainty in model parameters and model structure to obtain confidence statements for the estimate of risk and to identify the model components of dominant importance.

Dennis Fitzpatrick, in Analog Design and Simulation Using OrCAD Capture and PSpice (Second Edition), Introduction. Sensitivity Analysis is used to identify components that are most sensitive to circuit performance. The sensitivity of a circuit is defined as the ratio of the change in an output measurement of a circuit, to a change in a circuit parameter value that has a defined tolerance.

Sensitivity analysis is the tool that managers can use to get this information. It requires data, some understanding of analysis, and the specific knowledge that sensitivity analysis isn't a magic.

The model tuning through sensitivity analysis is a prominent procedure to assess the structural behavior and dynamic characteristics of cable-stayed bridges. Most of the previous sensitivity-based model tuning methods are automatic iterative processes; however, the results of recent studies show that the most reasonable results are achievable by applying the manual methods to update the Cited by: 3.

This book is an expository introduction to the methodology of sensitivity analysis of model output. It is primarily intended for investigators, students and researchers that are familiar with mathematical models but are less familiar with the techniques for performing their sensitivity : Springer International Publishing.

Herein, we review the state of design sensitivity analysis as it applies to linear elliptic by: introductory book, we will concentrate on this form of sensitivity analysis. Practical One final observation on the state of the art in sensitivity analysis: you are typically limited to analyzing the impact of changing only one coefficient at a time.

There are a few accepted techniques for changing several coefficients at once: the %. The engineering sensitivity analysis takes into account modern designs for various manufacturing purposes.

The analysis is done based on computer based models wherein certain indicators help in understanding the construction line that will be used for the production of a particular product.

In variance-based sensitivity analysis, the method of Sobol' [Sensitivity analysis for nonlinear mathematical models.

Sensitivity Analysis. In corporate finance, sensitivity analysis refers to an analysis of how sensitive the result of a capital budgeting technique is to a variable, say discount rate, while keeping other variables constant.

Sensitivity analysis is useful because it tells the model user how. Upon demonstration of its efficiency through analysis of a story frame structure, the method is applied to sensitivity and reliability analysis of the Jiangxinzhou Bridge, a five-span self-anchored suspension bridge, in which both structural parameters and external loads are considered as random variables.

The existing design sensitivity analysis capability in can be applied in one of two ways: 1. As a stand-alone feature, where you are concerned only with obtaining sensitivity analysis results. Such an application is completed with the output of the sensitivity analysis results.

The design sensitivity analysis (DSA) capability provides the derivatives of certain output variables with respect to specified design derivatives are commonly referred to as sensitivities, because they provide a first-order measure of how sensitive the output variable is to a change in the design output variables for which sensitivities are computed are called.
