Sensitivity Analysis is, the opinion of most, an important element of modelling. Inspite of apparent consensus, SA has been used parsimoniously in the scientific community. A paradoxical proof of this statement is the common occurrence in the literature of articles entitled uncertainty analysis and SA of some given model. It is the main thesis of the present contribution that many models should undergo UA and SA as a matter of course, prior and within its use in different applications. SA should be implicitly assumed as a part of any statement on or involving a model.
