The lengths of the pins made by the automatic lathe are normally distributed with a mean of 1.012 inches and a standard deviation of 0.018 inch. The customer will buy only those pins with lengths in the interval 1.00 ( 0.02 inch, that is, between 0.98 inches to 1.02 inches. The probability of a pin having a length between 0.98 and 1.02 is 0.6339. Therefore, we can say that 63.39% of the pins produced will be acceptable to the customers. This is a very low acceptance level.

In order to improve the percentage accepted, either the mean or the standard deviation needs to be adjusted. In order to maximize the acceptable percentage of pins keeping the standard deviation same, the mean needs to be adjusted to a value that is exactly between the tolerance limits. This will ensure that the tolerance limit will cover the maximum area under the standard normal curve which in turn means that the acceptance probability will be maximum. Thus, the mean needs to be set to 1.00 inches. This will make the probability of creating a pin within the tolerance limit as 0.7335. Thus, 73.35% of the pins would be acceptable when the mean is set to 1.00.

If the mean cannot be adjusted, but the standard deviation can be reduced, the maximum value of standard deviation that would make 90% of the parts acceptable (probability = 0.90) is 0.00624 inches. For making 95% of the parts acceptable, the standard deviation needs to be reduced to 0.00486. Similarly, for making 99% of the parts acceptable, the standard deviation needs to be reduced to 0.00343.

In practice it is easier to adjust the mean as compared to standard deviation. While adjusting the mean, the total cost involves only the engineer’s time and the cost of the production time lost. The cost of reducing the population standard deviation involves, in addition to these costs, the cost of overhauling the machine and reengineering the process.

...Pin-Up or Pin-Down?
Pin-Up Grrrls: Feminism, Sexuality, Popular Culture is a book written by Maria Elena Buszek that explains how third-wave feminists are taking back pin-up culture. This new pin-up culture is shown developing through a 150 year time span. Buszek examines old and new female sex symbols as well as the beginnings of this new revival of the pin-up genre. This book illustrates how women are...

...Read the Case – Acceptance Sampling of Pins of Complete Business Statistics and answer the following questions.
Also use the templates to verify the answer. Check and see the effect on acceptance of pins, when the mean and standard deviations are manipulated. Identify the most profitable situation based on cost of reengineering.
1. What is the probability that a batch will be acceptable to the consumer and if the probability is large enough to be an...

...in an early industrial pin factory from Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations to the organizing and structuring of work. The relation will be described done by examining the division and specialization of labour, requirements that lead to the need for coordination, Horizontal and Vertical Differentiation required for coordination and how structure/hierarchy arises and if it is in fact needed.
We can see that through the division and specialization of labour that Adam Smith’s...

...For years these boundaries have been broken with cultural advances including equal rights for all and interracial marriage. In the near future science will make it possible to clone human beings, forcing everyone to decide whether it is morally acceptable to clone. Is America ready to take the next step and pursue cloning for the benefit of medical and scientific advances? America along with the rest of the world is not ready for cloning and will never be accepting of...

...The 3 Pin Plug
The three pin plug is the most commonly used and one of the most important devise we use every day. Although it is an simple devise it is the most impotent part of any electrical object we use. And as we are getting more and more dependent on technology the plug is becoming increasingly important in our lives.

...Pin hole camera was invented by a Muslim scientist ibn-al-haitham.An Egyptian polymath (born in Iraq) whose research in geometry and optics was influential into the 17th century; established experiments as the norm of proof in physics (died in 1040).
Another inventor is the tenth century optician and physicist Abu Ali al-Hassan ibn al-Hassan ibn al-Haytham, simply known as al-Haytham, who invented the pinhole camera and discovered how the eye works.

...Pin Hole Camera.
A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens and with a single small aperture – effectively a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. The human eye in bright light acts similarly, as do cameras using small apertures.
Up to a certain point, the smaller the hole, and the sharper the image, but the dimmer the projected image....
