Dear BE-proff,

» AFAIK, authorities want to see validated software while R-based scripts seem not to be validated...
» How to prove officials that PowerTOST is reliable soft?:confused:

I'm not a friend of software validation, whatever that is.

Ask the same question to statements like:
"I have calculated the sample size with SAS, PASS, nQuery, Brain-Pencil-Paper ... (or whatever soft-/wetware you prefer ;-)). Is that SAS, PASS, nQuery, Brain-Pencil-Paper ... validated and reliable?"

See also this thread.

Then act. Others, more trained in this ugly field of software validation may give you more hints what to do in detail. In short:
BTW: PowerTOST is not an R-based script. It is a package providing you the possibility (via functions) to estimate power / sample size with your R-based script.
