One of the large photocopiers used by a printing company has a
number of special functions unique to that particular model. This
photocopier generally performs well but, because of the complexity
of its design and the frequency of usage, it occasionally breaks
down. The department has kept records of the number of breakdowns
per month over the last fifty months. The data is summarized in the
table below:

Waterways Continuing Problem 07 (Part 3)
Waterways is considering the replacement of an antiquated
machine that has been slowing down production because of breakdowns
and added maintenance. The operations manager estimates that this
machine still has 2 more years of possible use. The machine
produces an average of 50 units per day at a cost of $6.70 per
unit, whereas other similar machines are producing twice that much.
The units sell for $8.90. Sales are equal to production on these...

A maintenance worker in a large manufacturing plant knows that a
filling machine breaks down on average 3 times per month. Assume
these break downs occur randomly and independently of one
another.
a. If the random variable X is the
number of times the machine breaks down, identify the distribution
of X and state the value/s of its parameter/s
b. Calculate (using the appropriate statistical
tables) the probability there are less than three breakdowns in the
next month.
c. Calculate...

The Big Manufacturing Company produces a particular product in
an assembly line operation. One of the machines on the line is a
drill press that has a single assembly line feeding into it. A
partially completed unit arrives at the press to be worked on every
7.5 minutes, on average. The machine operator can process an
average of 10 parts per hour. Using the Poisson arrivals and
exponential service time model,
a-what is the average number of parts waiting to...

The Three Hills Power Company provides electricity to a large
metropolitan area through a series of almost 200 hydroelectric
generators. Management recognizes that even a well-maintained
generator will have periodic failures or breakdowns. Energy demands
over the past three years have been consistently high and the
company is concerned over downtime of generators. It currently
employs 4 highly skilled and highly paid ($30 per hour)
repairpersons. Each works every fourth 8-hour shift, so there is a
repairperson on duty 24...

Accounting Question - Capital Budgeting
The Community College registrar's office is considering replacing
some Canon copiers with faster copiers purchased from Kodak.
The office's 4 Canon machines are expected to last 5 more years.
They can each be sold immediately for $500; their resale value in 5
years will be zero. The Canon machines require 4 operators; they
are paid $8.40 an hour each and work 39 hours a week and 51 weeks a
year. The machines break down periodically,...

A specialist electronics company carries out its own repairs.
The manager of the repair center is becoming concerned that the
