A solution to the ranking and selection problem of determining a subset of size containing at least of the best from normal distributions has been developed. The best distributions are those having, for example, i the smallestmeans, or ii the smallest variances. This paper reviews various applicable algorithms and supplies the operating constants neededto apply these solutions. The constants are computed using a histogram approximation algorithm and Monte Carlo integration.
