Question

Suppose that a batch of electronics is produced by a machine with a defect rate of 1%. The electronics are sold in packages of 50 with a money-back guarantee that there are no more than 3 defectives in each package.

(a) Find the probability that a distributor returns a package.

(b) Assuming independence, find the probability that a distributor returns at least five packages out of a shipment of 100.

Answer #1

Exercise 12.8.1: Probability of manufacturing defects. The
probability that a circuit board produced by a particular
manufacturer has a defect is 1%. You can assume that errors are
independent, so the event that one circuit board has a defect is
independent of whether a different circuit board has a defect. (a)
What is the probability that out of 100 circuit boards made exactly
2 have defects? (b) What is the probability that out of 100 circuit
boards made at least...

Suppose that a two-level supply chain consisting of a consumer
electronics manufacturer and a retailer are in the business of
selling noise cancelling headphones. These headphones are in high
demand now, especially, since a lot of people plan to fly to their
vacation destinations during the summer. As you may agree, noise
cancelling headphones are a blessing on long-haul flights.
For the manufacturer, noise cancelling
headphones is a high margin product. However, given the randomness
in demand it is not...

DONLEY BROTHERS
The Donley Brothers Company had encountered the problem of
latent defects in some of its purchased castings. Being latent, the
defects did not show up until after machining had taken place at
Donley
Brothers. This group of failures greatly irritated the
manufacturing boss, who declared that “repairing
those darn castings is eating up all our profits.”
When the defects were discovered, the rough casting had to be
taken off the machine, the defect
chipped out and repair-welded, and...
