What I specifically need is help to define a statistical way to ensure that the worst case is captured, which can then be used in future testing and we can be sure that we haven’t under-tested by using a “less than worst case” condition.

Im hoping you can help come up with something like this:

1. Take 3 independent samples

2. Average the 3 samples and multiply by 1.8

3. This calculated value has a 99.9% likely to represent the worst case streaming current

Please provide the numbers for me with the workings out, if you can look at a few cases so we can see how repeating the number of samples and the multiplication factor affects the statistical confidence that would be great.

Assume that it follows a normal Gaussian distribution

The maximum scatter is 5 x the mode.

Hope this makes sense. Having real trouble with this.

Any help is appreciated.
