Comparisons with a Standard in Simulation Experiments

  title={Comparisons with a Standard in Simulation Experiments},
  author={Barry L. Nelson and David Goldsman},
  journal={Management Science},
We consider the problem of comparing a finite number of stochastic systems with respect to a single system (designated as the “standard”) via simulation experiments. The comparison is based on expected performance, and the goal is to determine if any system has larger expected performance than the standard, and if so to identify the best of the alternatives. In this paper we provide two-stage experiment design and analysis procedures to solve the problem for a variety of scenarios, including… CONTINUE READING
