An efficient method of calculating weights implementing the Bose-Einstein interference effects is presented. The usefulness of the method is demonstrated for the events generated by the JETSET/PYTHIA code to describe the UA1 proton-antiproton data at 630 GeV. A good description of data is achieved with a reasonable value of the Gaussian width of a two-particle weight factor, which is the only free parameter in our calculations.
