In a steady-state simulation, a specified precision may be achieved
either by increasing the number of replications *R*, or by
increasing the run length .

Example 12.16 on page 462 shows an example of calculating *R* for
a given precision.

Example 12.17 on page 463 shows an example of increasing for the given precision (recall the general rule: should be at least ).
