Abstract.A modeling methodology is developed for complex systems, systems of several interacting components, with observable component performance normal fields that are also separable over the space of uncertainties. The algebra of operator representations of system components is completed by using separable equivalents in place of sums which are in general nonseparable. The end product is a computation of the mean and variance of the performance of the modeled system at each point in the space of system uncertainties.
