    Uncertainties in the geometry of complex cable bundles highly complicate crosstalk predictions. A change in for instance the position or the twist rate of individual cables in a bundle might have an impact on crosstalk levels. Application of sensitivity analyses can indicate which model parameters are most sensitive, and in which cabling configurations. In this paper, the efficient Stochastic Reduced Order Models (SROM) method is used to perform such a sensitivity analysis. It is applied to two cable bundles with two and seven twisted wire pairs, respectively. Monte Carlo simulations are performed to determine the accuracy of the SROM method. The sensitivity of parameters like inter-pair and intra-pair separation distance and the twist rate is determined in two different cases. Moreover, the effects of bundle twist and cable meandering to parameter sensitivities is investigated.
