An investigation was conducted of the relative efficiences of two alternative methods for simulation: a fixed time increment model and a variable time increment model. Special attention is given to the effects of 4 factors: the relative frequency of events per unit of simulated time, the utilization ratio of the service facility, the distribution of service times, and the distribution of inter-arrival times.
