Scaling methods allow the estimation of the impact of changes in individual parameters on system performance. In the technical context, physical similarity is the focus. This paper demonstrates the extension of scaling methods to include uncertainty scaling. The advantages of using scaling uncertainty for the development of scaled products and the contribution of extended scaling methods to the analysis and assessment of uncertainty are illustrated. Uncertainty scaling based on dimensional analysis and complete similarity is derived. The potential of this method is demonstrated using a load carrying structure - a buckling beam.
