In order to obtain the Required Safety Egress Time (RSET) accurately, traditional engineering calculation method of evacuation time has been optimized in this paper. Several principles and fact situations were used to optimize the method, such as detecting principle of the fire detecting system, reaction characteristics of staff being in urgent situation, evacuating queuing theory, building structure and the plugging at the porthole. Taking a three-storey KTV as an example, two methods are used to illustrate the reliability and scientific reasonability of the calculation result. The result is deduced by comparing the error (less than 2%) at an allowable range between two results. One result is calculated by a modified method of engineering calculation method, and the other one is given based on a Steering model of Pathfinder evacuation simulation software. The optimized RSET has a good feasibility and Accuracy.
