A sensitivity analysis allows you to determine the sensitivity of the safety factor to changes in the values of individual input parameters. This tutorial uses the same model as Tutorial 08 (Probabilistic Analysis). The cohesion, friction angle and unit weight are defined as sensitivity analysis variables.
