Increasing attention is being paid to non-conventional Mössbauer methods in view of the extension of Mössbauer Spectroscopy (MS) to a broadening field of applications. With such long-lasting experiments the shortening of the measuring time required for a given statistical significance is of major practical importance. It is shown that the statistical utility rate u allows one to determine which experimental parameters have a primary role, and it also enables sucessive optimization. It is pointed out for various MS measurements that the strategy for improving the experimental performance is strongly dependent on the given problem. As examples, time-differential Mössbauer measurements and conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy are discussed.
