Question

Clark Heter is an industrial engineer at Lyons Products. He would like to determine whether there are more units produced on the night shift than on the day shift. The mean number of units produced by a sample of 57 day shift workers was 359. The mean number of unts produced by a sample of 65 night shifters was 369. Assume the population standard deciation of the number of units produced on the day shift is 23 and 32 on the night shift.

At the .05 sig level id the number of units produced on the night shift larger

a. is this a one tailed or 2 tailed test?

b. state the decision rule. round 2 decimal places

the decision rule is to reject if z<

c. compute the value of the test statistic round to 2 decimals

d. what is your decision regarding h0? reject/do not reject

Answer #1

The statistical software output for this problem is:

**Two sample Z summary hypothesis test:**

?_{1} : Mean of population 1 (Std. dev. = 23)

?_{2} : Mean of population 2 (Std. dev. = 32)

?_{1} - ?_{2} : Difference between two means

H_{0} : ?_{1} - ?_{2} = 0

H_{A} : ?_{1} - ?_{2} < 0

**Hypothesis test results:**

Difference |
n_{1} |
n_{2} |
Sample mean |
Std. err. |
Z-stat |
P-value |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

?_{1} - ?_{2} |
57 | 65 | -10 | 5.0034536 | -1.9986195 | 0.0228 |

Hence,

a) One tailed

b) Decision rule: z < -1.96

c) Test statistic = -2.00

d) Reject

Clark Heter is an industrial engineer at Lyons Products. He
would like to determine whether there are more units produced on
the night shift than on the day shift. The mean number of units
produced by a sample of 59 day-shift workers was 323. The mean
number of units produced by a sample of 67 night-shift workers was
333. Assume the population standard deviation for the number of
units produced on the day shift is 19 and is 27 on...

Clark Heter is an industrial engineer at Lyons Products. He
would like to determine whether, on average, there are more units
produced on the night shift (Population n) than on the day
shift (Population d ). A sample of 52 day-shift workers
showed the mean number of units produced is 355. The
population standard deviation of
day-shift production is 21 units. A sample of 58 night-shift
workers showed that the mean number of units produced is 363. The

Chapin Manufacturing Company operates 24 hours a day, five days
a week. The workers rotate shifts each week. Management is
interested in whether there is a difference in the number of units
produced when the employees work on various shifts. A sample of
five workers is selected and their output recorded on each shift.
At the 0.01 significance level, can we conclude there is a
difference in the mean production rate by shift or by employee?
Units Produced
