Mathematically, a sensitivity is a partial derivative of some measure of the performance of a product, such as the aerodynamic drag or the stress at a point, with respect to a parameter representing a physical property of the product or its environment. In this context sensitivity analysis provides a measure of the effect of small perturbations, local to the initial design. Read more in this NAFEMS pamphlet.
