    This paper presents a selection procedure that combines Bechhofer's indifference zone selection and Gupta's subset selection approaches, by using a preference threshold. For normal populations with common known variance, a subset is selected of all populations that have sample sums within the distance of this threshold from the largest sample sum. We derive the minimal necessary sample size and the value for the preference threshold, in order to satisfy two probability requirements for correct selection, one related to indifference zone selection, the other to subset selection. Simulation studies are used to illustrate the method.
