We present an automated procedure that interfaces with SIMSCRIPT II.5 simulation experiments to derive point and interval estimators for infinite-horizon parameters of stochastic simulations. The procedure combines the nonoverlapping batch means method of output analysis and the control variates variance reduction technique. Batch size and control variates are selected automatically. The paper emphasizes methodology issues and experimental evaluation rather than the specific software developed.
