Hello nmusers,
I've tried to test the SAEM method on my dataset (1 sample for each ID)
with different SEED status. Sometimes, I've got good results (with RSE
<50%), but sometimes I can't get it.

Example:
$EST METHOD=SAEM INTERACTION NBURN=3000 NITER=500 AUTO=1 PRINT=10=
0
SEED=123456789
$EST METHOD=IMP EONLY=1 PRINT=1 NITER=5 ISAMPLE=1000 MAPITER=0
I've got EPS : 0.00064 (RSE=63%)

but
$EST METHOD=SAEM INTERACTION NBURN=3000 NITER=500 AUTO=1 PRINT=10=
0
SEED=123235489
$EST METHOD=IMP EONLY=1 PRINT=1 NITER=5 ISAMPLE=1000 MAPITER=0
I've got EPS : 0.0223 (RSE=18%)

Could i trust on the good results (EPS=0.0223)? How can we control this
problem?

Thank you very much,
