The authors consider three methods for selecting the best of a set of competing systems: interactive analysis, ranking and selection, and multiple comparisons. They describe each method; discuss assumptions, implementation aspects, advantages, and disadvantages; and demonstrate the use of each method with an airline reservation system simulation example.
