This paper examines how engineering models can be used to develop robust designs—designs that can tolerate variation. Variation is defined in terms of tolerances which bracket the expected deviation of model variables and/or parameters. Several methods for robust design are discussed. The method of transmitted variation is explained in detail and illustrated on a linkage design problem and a check valve design problem.
