The uncertainty components such as temperature, humidity, materials, work tolerance exist in creating a real product. But, an analysis only provides a result to the given model. Therefore, the statistical approach is needed to the dynamic analysis for developing the reliable product. AutoDesign enables a reliability analysis based on stochastic dynamics.
