  1. In their 2004 seminal paper, Glynn and Juneja formally and precisely established the rate-optimal, probability of incorrect-selection, replication allocation scheme for selecting the best of k simulated systems. In the case of independent, normally distributed outputs this allocation has a simple form that depends in an intuitively appealing way on the true means and variances. Of course the means and (typically) variances are unknown, but the rate-optimal allocation provides a target for implementable, dynamic, data-driven policies to achieve. In this paper we compare the empirical behavior of four related replication-allocation policies: mCEI from Chen and Rzyhov and our new gCEI policy that both converge to the Glynn and Juneja allocation; AOMAP from Peng and Fu that converges to the OCBA optimal allocation; and TTTS from Russo that targets the rate of convergence of the posterior probability of incorrect selection. We find that these policies have distinctly different behavior in some settings.
