The aim of the present paper is to evaluate the use of linear and quadratic approximating response surfaces as metamodels in a reliability assessment of a sheet metal forming process using the Monte Carlo simulation technique. Monte Carlo simulation was used to determine the probability for springback and thickness variation in a sheet metal part. The conclusions of this study is that Monte Carlo analysis can be used to identify the most important variables and to estimate the range of the studied responses. Linear metamodels can be used to identify the important variables and to give an estimate of the probabilistic response. But quadratic surfaces are required for a more accurate analysis.
