Question

QUESTION 5 (Solve by hand)

A cell phone manufacturer has noticed that the number of faulty cell phones detected in a production run only depends on the supervisor on duty and is detected according to a Poisson Process. There are only 2 supervisors: James and Russell, in the firm. The average number of faulty cell phones is two per day when James is on duty, while the average number of faulty cell phones is three per day when Russell is on duty. It is also known that the quality of one day’s production doesn’t seem to have bearing on the next day. Russell works 3 out of 5 days, while James works 2 out of 5 days.

a) What is the probability that no faulty cell phones will be
produced tomorrow, if Russell is on duty?

b) What is the expected number of faulty cell phones to be produced
in the next two days, if Russel is on duty?

c) What is the probability that no faulty cell phones will be
produced in the next two days?

d) Suppose at least one faulty cell phone was produced yesterday,
what is the probability that James was on duty?

Answer #1

A manager at a company that manufactures cell phones has noticed
that the number of faulty cell phones in a production run of cell
phones is usually small and that the quality of one day's run
seems to have no bearing on the next day.
a) What model might you use to model the number of faulty cell
phones produced in one day?
b) If the mean number of faulty cell phones is 1.7 per day,
what is the probability...

If the number of arrivals in a cell phone shop follows a Poisson
distribution, with a reason of 10 clients per hour:
What is the probability that in the next half hour, 4 clients
arrive?
What is the probability that in the next two hours, between 18
and 22 clients arrive?
What is the average time between arrivals?
What is the median of the time between arrivals?
What is the probability that the time that transpires for the
next arrival...
