Abstract
The purpose of this report is to describe a quantitative mathematical foundation for the following: A) Calculate the required number of simulation runs or trials in order to determine the ECM effectiveness to a desired accuracy and confidence; B) Determine the accuracy of the ECM effectiveness as calculated from a population of simulation runs or trials, based on the run population size; C) Determine the confidence level of the ECM effectiveness, based on the run population size. Although the analysis presented here applies equally to software simulation and hardware trials, the term “simulation runs” shall be used to refer equally to software simulation and hardware trials.
