Question

A manufacturer produces test tubes from two independent processes. Process 1 produces

10% defectives while Process 2 produces 15% defectives. Random samples of size 100

are obtained from each process on a daily basis. What is the probability that the sample

from Process 1 has fewer defectives than the of Process 2?

The number of defectives out of 100 from process 1 has Binomial distribution with . The normal approximation is

A manufacturer produces a component for use in the automotive industry. It is known that 1% of the items produced are defective. Suppose a random sample of 20 items is examined. (a) Find the probability that (i) no defectives are found in the sample, (ii) one or fewer defectives are found in the sample. (b) Find: (i) the mean (expected) number of defectives in the sample, (ii) the variance and standard deviation.

A manufacturer of computer memory chips produces chips in lots of 1000. If nothing has gone wrong in the manufacturing process, at most 7 chips each lot would be defective, but if something does go wrong, there could be far more defective chips. If something goes wrong with a given lot, they discard the entire lot. It would be prohibitively expensive to test every chip in every lot, so they want to make the decision of whether or not to...

2) A bicycle component manufacturer produces hubs for bike wheels. Two processes are possible for manufacturing, and the parameters of each process are as follows Process 1 Process 2 Production rate Daily production time Percent of parts rejected based on visual inspection 35 parts/hour 4 hours/day 20% 15 parts/hour 7 hours/day 9% Assume that the daily demand for hubs allows all defect-free hubs to be sold. Additionally, tested or rejected hubs cannot be sold Find the process that maximizes profit...

1. Suppose a manufacturer has plants at two different locations. From the long-time observations, it is known that approximately 5% and 8% defectives are produced at these two locations. Random samples of 300 items are selected from one week's production at each location. What is the likelihood that the sample proportions will differ by less than 1%.

Let ??1(??) and ??2(??) be two independent Poisson processes with rates ??1 = 1 and ??2 = 2, respectively. Find the probability that the second arrival in ??1(??) occurs before the third arrival in ??2(??). Hint: One way to solve this problem is to think of ??1(??) and ??2(??) as two processes obtained from splitting a Poisson process.
