The problem of determining the required precision in observations in order to obtain a desired precision in final parameters, classically known as the second order design problem, is revisited in this paper and proposed to be solved by the simulated annealing method. An example and a flexible implementation in MATLAB are given. © 2011 American Society of Civil Engineers.
