Summary: 
In this letter, we consider several optimization problems associated with the configuration of grouping-based framed slotted ALOHA protocols. Closed-form formulas for determining the optimal values of system parameters such as the process termination time and confidence levels for partitioned groups are presented. Further, we address the maximum group size required for meaningful grouping gain and the effectiveness of the grouping technique in light of signaling overhead.
