Deep drawing of a benchmark B-pillar is numerically modelled and experimentally performed with varying blankholder force and several blank shape parameters. The most influential parameters are selected for optimisation. Direct application of Autoform sigma software was used to determine sensitivities, as well as indirect application using response surfaces. Interesting nonlinear sensitivities were found that will be missed with simple linear screening techniques
