Default Group Repair Rolls

Hello,

My game group is attempting to repair there ship's damage in my Space Opra game. Now, according to the Traveller Rules, all the engineers make rolls and success add 1 hp (10 success for 1 deca). I'm trying to figure out away how to not roll 15 individual times for all the engineers on the ship.

I was reading Social Engineer and it hits on some Group Performance stuff. That sounded promising. But wanted to test the community's knowledge, before I come up with some ruling myself.

Anyone out there have any suggestions as to turing 15 differnt roles into 1 role as per the Repair Rules from GURPS Basic?

Hi,
I created a very useful table a very long time ago which allowed me to know, in groups of 5, 10 and 20, how much are successful, according to the average level of their skill, in a single 3d roll by group.
In the case that interests you, a roll for 5 pnj and a roll for 10 pnj; on the other hand, it does not tell you what margin of success each will make, as for that it would be necessary to make other statistical calculations.
I can send it to you in pdf format if you give me an email.

Okay, so a simple method:

Every engineer with a skill of 12-14 gives a +1 to the Engineer with the highest skill. Skill of 15+ gives a +2.

You make one roll, if successful, it repairs 1 HP, plus 1 for every Margin of Success.

I like that idea.
