This paper follows-on papers presented at the two previous WSC conferences on sensitivity of output measures to input distribution selection in queueing modeling. Here, a real situation is studied, where data on input distributions are utilized and distributions selected by two fitting packages, Arena Input Analyzer and ExpertFit. Empirical distributions made from histograms of the raw data itself , as well as the first two choices from Arena and ExpertFit are compared for this small bank
