Simulation repeatability

I'm running a series of simulations, comparing the effects of minor changes to a particular part's functionality. Using the same mesh settings, I cycled thru the parts, and ran each one multiple times to verify the results. For some reason, the variance between max stress values (for the same model, I checked multiple times) varied from .1% to over 10% over five runs. Does anyone have a clue how this could've happened?
