The standard clock (SC) method is an efficient approach for discrete event simulation. Its basic ideas are quite different from traditional approaches. SC has neither an event list nor event lifetimes. However, its applicability is limited to exponential distributions and a class of non-exponential distributions. In this paper we provide an effective approach to extend SC to all general distributions, while preserving the efficiency advantage of SC. Numerical testing shows that our approach can effectively accomplish this goal
