Estimate the Optimal UNDO Tablespace size in Oracle

We can size the undo tablespace appropriately either by using automatic extension of the undo tablespace or by using the Undo Advisor for a fixed sized tablespace.If we have decided on a fixed-size undo tablespace, the Undo Advisor can help us to estimate needed capacity.The Undo Advisor relies for its analysis on data collected in the Automatic Workload Repository (AWR). It is therefore important that the AWR have adequate workload statistics available so that the Undo Advisor can make accurate recommendations. 

Below is the script which will estiate the size of the undo tablespace required and also provide the detail when the database face the Number of "ORA-01555 (Snapshot too old)" encountered since the last startup of the instance

sounds terrific but it doesnt give me any thing when I run it

only this
