    The purpose of the study was to investigate whether global sensitivity analysis can be utilised in concurrent process and control design to gain insight into the process and its control. This paper addresses the issue of sensitivity of a control law performance to its parameters in a dynamic, hybrid deterministic–stochastic process model. The control law under investigation is a collection of single-input, single-output type tower level controllers in a papermaking process. Global sensitivity analysis is shown to attribute higher importance to certain key parameters, thus providing valuable insight for the designer.
