Function to compute upper Clopper-Pearson confidence limits of failure probabilities on the basis of differently sized reference products and failures tackled by countermeasures. Optionally, the required numbers of additional inspections for each reference product to reach a predefined target failure probability of the follower product are returned.

`k` |
vector of total numbers of failures for each reference product. |

`n` |
vector of numbers of inspected devices for each reference product. |

`A.ref` |
vector of chip sizes for each reference product (in mm^2). |

`A.follow` |
size of follower product. |

`K` |
matrix with entries K[j,i] denoting the number of failures of the j-th reference product tackled with the i-th countermeasure. If two or more countermeasures
have the same efficiency, they can be handled as one countermeasure for several failures. If the i-th countermeasure does not apply to the j-th reference product, then set K[j,i]=0. If there is no countermeasure for a failure at all, then it does not need to be considered in |

`theta` |
vector of (different) effectivenesses of countermeasures. |

`alpha` |
alpha-level (1-alpha confidence level, default: 0.1). |

`p.target` |
target failure probability of follower product (optional). |

`prec` |
precision for greatest common divisor is 10^- |

`tailcut` |
probabilities for scaled failures smaller than |

`tol` |
tolerance of |

`p.ref.cm` |
vector of upper Clopper-Pearson confidence limits for each reference product with countermeasures (without the other reference products). |

`p.mm.cm` |
upper Clopper-Pearson confidence limit of the failure probability per mm^2 with countermeasures (on the basis of all reference products). |

`p.follow.cm` |
upper Clopper-Pearson confidence limit of the failure probability of the follower product with countermeasures (on the basis of all reference products). |

`n.add.cm` |
vector of required numbers of additional inspections for each reference product in order to reach p.target for the follower product with countermeasures. |
