Model the uncertainties
A product can have variable performance and behaviour during its lifespan, depending on the stresses it is subjected to or its characteristics. The lack of knowledge and the imprecision of experimental measurements motivate the modelling of product-related uncertainties. The MS course introduces the fundamental elements for modelling uncertainties and analysing product performance in all cases.
