Abstract : The paper is concerned with the multiple decision (selection and ranking) problem for k independent normal populations having unknown means and a known common variance. A class of sequential and multi-stage procedures is defined and investigated. This class consists of rules of a noneliminating type; a rule belonging to this class selects and rejects populations at various stages but continues taking samples from all populations until the procedure terminates.
