Standard Deviation and Minimum Order

mean+0.67*SD (standard deviation). According to z table, z equal to 0.67 when probability is 0.75. Therefore, we can calculate quantity for each style include the risk of stock out by using formulate Q*=mean+z*SD. Therefore, we can get the maximum order units for each style in order to avoid stock out. Figure 1 |Style |Price |Average |Standard |2*standard |P=1-8%/(24%+8|Z |Q*=Average+z*SD | | | |forecast |deviation |deviation...

Probability: Standard Deviation and Pic

9551/SQRT(300),1) = 0.0783 (c) A circuit contains three resistors wired in series. Each is rated at 6 ohms. Suppose, however, that the true resistance of each one is a normally distributed random variable with a mean of 6 ohms and a standard deviation of 0.3 ohm. What is the probability that the combined resistance will exceed 19 ohms? How "precise" would the manufacturing process have to be to make the probability less than 0.005 that the combined resistance of the circuit would exceed 19...

Standard Deviation and Probability

order is long and uncertain. This time gap is called “lead time.” From past experience, the materials manager notes that the company’s demand for glue during the uncertain lead time is normally distributed with a mean of 187.6 gallons and a standard deviation of 12.4 gallons. The company follows a policy of placing an order when the glue stock falls to a predetermined value called the “reorder point.” Note that if the reorder point is x gallons and the demand during lead time exceeds x gallons...

Standard Deviation and Double Degree

in analysing the data is determining if outliers exists within the data. The presence of outliers must be evaluated because their existence could distort the data and make it inaccurate. In order to determine if outliers exist the average and standard deviation must be calculated in order to calculate the Z score, which will show, wither or not outliers exist. In this instance to outliers where found present in the data set as all of the data fell within the +3,-3 range, the largest positive outlier...

standard deviation

Standard deviation can be difficult to interpret as a single number on its own. Basically, a small standard deviation means that the values in a statistical data set are close to the mean of the data set, on average, and a large standard deviation means that the values in the data set are farther away from the mean, on average. The standard deviation measures how concentrated the data are around the mean; the more concentrated, the smaller the standard deviation. A small standard deviation can...
