I am not familiar with Hspice.  However, does Hspice have nested steps
like other versions of SPICE?  It would seem it will be a lot to
easier to do everything within Hspice.  Plus if you use a batch file
you will end up with 50 separated output files.  How will you compare
the output results from this many files?

If you are interested  I can point you to an example in another
version of SPICE where the author stepped the L and W parameters of
CMOS transistors.
