Abstract

This article describes a pattern how to use a method to analyse uncertainty in load-carrying structures. Object of this paper is to explain how coherences between uncertainties of process properties influence several successive processes. This uncertainty appears for example during different process operations or by reason of variations during the utilization process of the product. During the planning and development processes uncertainty mainly has to be taken into account for the modelling and forecasting of technical, environmental and economic product and process properties. Furthermore this method can be extended to a complete process chain including a developing and utilization phase to control uncertainty in a holistic way.

ds endorsed conferenceDSM 2011 - The 13th International Conference on Dependency and Structure Modelling (DSM) Techniques

Please note: Due to the sad situation at the moment in Japan, the DSM Conference 2011, originally planned to be held at Kyoto/Japan, has been shifted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. The date has been moved to one day earlier than originally planned: September 14 - 15, 2011. Dependency and Structure Modelling (DSM) techniques support the management of complexity by focusing attention on the elements of a complex system and how they are related...
