Index color printing uses pixels in the computer to generate random "spots" on film or screen in a square shape. It uses squares because they are easier to generate, however are neither as precise nor as demanding as (AM) halftone patterns. The benefit to index printing is more about processing speed, not print quality. It is similar to simulated process in that the colors are not specific densities of C+M+Y+K, but are selected by the artist to make a killer (but not technically precise) T-shirt.
