This work analysis the computational complexity of the MCNP/X code. Based on this analysis a number of rules of thumb have been established. Following these rules of thumb, the user of MCNP/X can gain a reasonable amount of computation time. A second aspect studied in this work is Global Variance Reduction: an iterative process to fix a weight window to reduce the global relative error. GVR allows to have a simulation result with a very flat relative error profile, even at places where neutron flux is low.
