The tutorial teaches the concepts of variation risk management and the methodology of key characteristics to an audience of college-level engineers. Key problems addressed in the design of the tutorial are the need to accurately communicate the concepts and background material necessary for understanding, the need to keep the reader's interest, and the need to ensure readability of the tutorial of a wide range of audience. The use of the web's various devices (hypertext links, pictures, and interactive applets), the use of examples, and the use of a standard page format have been integrated or will be integrated into the tutorial design to address these problems.
