Abstract:

This paper proposes a stopping rule Rule 2 for terminating data collection in a queueing simulation experiment. The appeal of the rule lies in the fact that data collected in this way can be used to compute interval estimates with coverage rates that compare favorably with theoretically specified rates. The rule relies on a comparison between a priori information on the activity level traffic intensity p and a corresponding sample estimator computed during the course of simulation.
