... Bottling Company Case Study | MAT 300: StatisticsProfessor: Dr. Negash Begashaw September 2, 2014 | Maggie L. Moore | Customers have begun to complain that the bottles of Lonice’s Soda contain less than the advertised sixteen ounces of soda. Today I asked my employees to randomly pull thirty bottles off the lines at random from all the shifts at the Lonice’s bottling plant. After asking them to measure the amount of soda in each bottle we came up with the following data. (See attached spread sheet). To calculate the mean, median and standard deviation for the ounces in the bottles I first imported the data in excel. After importing the data I use the Data analysis function where I choose descriptive statistics. Once choosing descriptive statistics I clicked ok and input my data range. Afterward I selected summary statistics and press OK. The forwarding data was provided; the mean equaling 14.87, median equaling 14.8, standard deviation equaling 0.550. To construct a ninety-five confidence interval for the ounces in the bottles I use the following information. X equal to 14.87 which is the mean of the data from the bottles, n equal to 30, because of the amount of bottles we use, standard deviation equals zero point five five zero which was calculate with the data from the bottles. I use the formula [ ] which gave me the lower limit of 14.673 and an upper limit of 15.067. Finally I conducted a hypothesis test to verify if the claim that......

...Running Head: Stateline Shipping and Transport Company Stateline Shipping and Transport Company Quantitative Methods – Math 540 1) The model transportation problem consists of 18 decision variables; symbolize the number of barrels of wastes transported from each of the six plants to each of the three waste disposal sites: [pic]= Number of Barrels transported per week from plant ‘i’ to the j-th waste disposal site, Where i = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and j = A, B, C. Objective function of the manager is to minimize the total transportation cost for all shipments. The objective function is the sum of the individual shipping costs from each plant to each waste disposal site: Minimize Z = 12[pic]+ 15[pic]+ 17[pic]+ 14[pic]+ 9[pic]+ 10[pic]+ 13[pic]+ 20[pic] +11[pic] +17[pic] +16[pic] +19[pic] +7[pic] +14[pic] +12[pic] +22[pic] +16[pic] +18[pic] The constraints in the model are the number of barrels of wastes available per week at each plant and the number of barrels of wastes accommodated at each waste disposal site. There are nine constraints- one for each plant supply and one for each waste disposal site’s demand. The six supply constraints are: [pic]+ [pic]+ [pic] = 35 [pic]+ [pic]+ [pic] = 26 [pic]+ [pic] +[pic] = 42 [pic] + [pic] +[pic] = 53 [pic] +[pic] +[pic] = 29 [pic] + [pic] +[pic] = 38 The supply constraint [pic]+ [pic]+ [pic] = 35 symbolize the number of barrels transported from the plant Kingsport to......

...To maximize profits Julia should provide 1,250 pizza slices; 1,250 hot dogs and zero BBQ sandwiches. A profit would be maximized (represented as Z) at $2,250 for game. However it is important that we discuss her expenses and take that into consideration as well. She has to lease the actual booth and it costs her $1000 to do so per game. She also has to lease the warming oven, which is $600 for the 6 game season; this equates to $100 per game. So her profit would be $2250 - $1000 (booth) - $100 (oven) = $1150. Julia uses $1500 for the first time but after that she can use the profit from the previous game to supply funds for the food in the future. A) Evaluate the prospect of borrowing money before the first game. If Julia borrowed money it would increase her profit. The dual value from the linear programming model is $1.50 for each additional model. From the table, you can see that the upper limit is $1,658.88. This translates that she should only borrow $158.88, which is formulated by $1,658.88- $1,500.00 (her original investment money). Her original profit was $2,250. If you add her additional profit of $238.32 to her original profit, then there will be a new total profit of $2,488.32. B) Evaluate the prospect of paying a friend $100/ game to assist. Julia should indeed hire her friend for $100 per game. That would be a lot of work for one person in a very limited time frame. This would be a smart business move, especially if you take into......

...To accomplish the goal of bringing my Café to the new millennium I will assesses our ability to compete in the new market based off Porters Five Forces. The five forces are buyer power, supplier power, threat of substitute products or services, threat of new entrants, and rivalry among existing competitors. These forces will allow us to approach each situation with a proven business model. Buyer power in our current community is high. The ability to substitute the products we offer is significant. Grocery stores, major franchises, and other markets are able to sell salads, coffee beans, pastry and more. The ability to switch between venues is effortless and with the addition of Dunkin Donuts as a competitor, the buyer power will be even stronger. To compete against the buyer power we will need to create a rewards program. The rewards program also known as a loyalty program will be offered to all customers. The company’s offerings will be discounts on purchases, reward points for future purchases, special coupons, and more. The objective of this program is to give my Café the advantage for purchases and to bring the customer in along with new friends to my store. Supplier power is how many choices a buyer has to obtain the product of choice. In the current market, the supplier power is very low due to the business-to-business (B2B) through the Internet. B2B is essential for keeping cost down and to guarantee our coffee bean distributor stays in line with......
