Proceeding of the 2001 Winter Simulation Conference (Cat. No.01CH37304)  
Screening is the first phase of an experimental study on systems and simulation models. Its purpose is to eliminate negligible factors so that efforts may be concentrated upon just the important ones. Successfully screening more than about 20 or 30 factors has been investigated only in the past 10 or 15 years with most improvements in the past 5 years. A handful of alternative methods including sequential bifurcation, iterated fractional factorial designs, and the Trocine Screening Procedure
