The aim of this work is twofold: first the discussion of which is the status of the theoretical steps towards the precise-enough M.C. event generator, and second some prospects on how to deal with the event generators available at present. Therefore a simple analysis of the size and effect of the relevant corrections to be taken into account to fulfill the foreseen accuracy needed at LEP energies is presented. Additionally, a review of the different ways of implementing them developed so far and available at present in the form of M.C. event generators is presented. The intrinsic differences are commented and the real range of validity of each implementation is discussed.
