In this work we study the uncertainty of nuclear model parameters for neutron induced Fe-56 reactions in the fast neutron region by using the Total Monte Carlo method. We perform a large number of TALYS runs and compare the calculated results with the experimental data of the cross sections to obtain the uncertainties of the model parameters. Based on the derived uncertainties another 1000 TALYS runs have been performed to create random cross section files. For comparison with the experimental data we calculate a weighted chi(2) value for each random file as well as the ENDF/B-VII. 1, JEFF-3.1, JENDL-4.0 and CENDL-3.1 data libraries. Furthermore, we investigate the optical model parameters correlation obtained by way of this procedure.
