Abstract: Smalø[2] showed that the index of nilpotency of the endomorphism ring of a module $ {M_R}$ of finite length is bounded by the number $ \max \left\{ {{n_A}\vert{A_R}\;{\text{simple}}} \right\}$, where $ {n_A}$ denotes the number of times $ {A_R}$ occurs as a factor in a composition chain of $ {M_R}$. We give another proof of Smalø's theorem which leads to an analogous result for artinian modules whose homogeneous length is finite.
