There are two ways of doing so. The first method is to define the figure-of-merit in the “Advanced” tab under the “Figure of merit script” window. Please make sure you check the “Use figure of merit script” box when using this method.

The other method, which is also the one I recommend in you case, is to pre-define this figure-of-merit inside the Root Element Edit window and then optimize this figure-of-merit. To pre-define the figure-of-merit, you need to add a new result in the “Edit Root Element” window under the “Results” tab. Then under the “Scripts” tab, in the “Analysis script” window, write the script to define the figure-of-merit and add it to the new result you have just defined. Then in the “Optimization” window, you can add this result as the figure-of-merit.
