Offers, as a contribution to the debate on probabilistic engineering design, the suggestion that quality problems in development and manufacture can be anticipated and resolved before they occur by applying variance synthesis to the basic design. Only after a satisfactory design has been established should engineering tolerances be applied to control the manufacturing process. Identifies dominant sources of variability variance synthesis in addition to providing a statistical basis for calculating a safety factor. Gives two illustrative examples.
