FG layup schedule to achieve desired thickness

Here's the question: How do I translate thickness of a laminate to a layup schedule?

Sometime in the near future, I am going to have to do some core replacement on my decks. Once I cut into them, I will know how thick they should be and desire to replicate that thickness. Where the core is still 100%, the decks are fine so I believe that I should try to replicate the factory thickness.

Maybe I'm just approaching this from the wrong direction. But, I can't figure out how to measure the thickness short of doing a test layup. I could mess around with this and come up with something but, if there are formulas to get where I need to be, I'd like to work from that direction so I can get enough of what I need the first go around.

Thank you
