BUSI 411 CHAPTER 10 Problem 10-1 Specifications for a part for a DVD player state that the part should weigh between 24.4 and 25.4 ounces. The process that produces the parts has a mean of 24.9 ounces and a standard deviation of .24 ounce. The distribution of output is normal. Use Table-A. a.What percentage of parts will not meet the weight specs? (Round your “z” value and final answer to 2 decimal places. Omit the “%” sign in your response.) Percentage of parts b.Within what values will 95.44 percent of sample means of this process fall, if samples of n = 7 are taken and the process is in control (random)? (Round your answers to 2 decimal places.) Lower value, Upper value Problem 10-11 Specifications for the computer upgrades are 77 minutes and 81 minutes. Estimate the percentage of process output that can be expected to fall within the specifications. (Round your answer to 1 decimal place. Omit the “%” sign in your response.)

The scrap rate is 18 percent for the first step and 7 percent for the other two steps. a.If the desired daily output is 495 units, how many units must be started to allow for loss due to scrap? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round up your final answer to the next whole number.) Number of units b.If the scrap rate for each step could be cut in half at every operation, how many units would this save in terms of the scrap allowance? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round up your final answer to the next whole number.) Number of units c.If the scrap represents a cost of $10 per unit, how much is it costing the company per day for the original scrap rate (i.e. the Part a scrap rate)? (Round your final answer to the nearest whole number. Omit the “$” sign in your response.) Cost
