 Layer Sensitivity

The Layer Sensitivity option allows you to estimate a design sensitivity to layer thickness variations. After specifying layer thickness variation, the program replaces one by one the layer theoretical thicknesses by varied thicknesses and computes merit function variations corresponding to disturbed designs. Then, the obtained merit function variations are ranged from 0 to 100%. The corresponding ranges are displayed. The layer ranked number 1 in the Sensitivity order is the layer that is most sensitive to change, it is assigned a relative sensitivity of 100%.  Layer sensitivity can be calculated with respect to the design target as well as to design performance.
