A method for quantifying uncertainty in conceptual-level design via a computationallyefficient probabilistic method is described. As an example application, the investigated method is applied to estimating the propellant mass required by a spacecraft to perform attitude control. The variables of the design are first classified and assigned appropriate… CONTINUE READING
