One of the factors affecting the performance of distributed simulation models is the assignment of logical processes to processors. This paper outlines a dynamic allocation scheme which can be used for assigning logical processes to processors to minimize the run time of the simulation. The experiments were conducted on an iPSC Hypercube, and indicated that the dynamic scheme reduced and stabilized run times, and was even necessary in some cases for the successful execution of the simulation.
