by Douglas C. Montgomery and George C. Runger, Wiley 2007

The final grade will be assigned as follows:

Final Examination 65%

Term test, 15% , Homework - Minitab 20%


There will be a review session at 19:00 

in B05 at 585 KED on Tuesday December 9th

plus

Another review session before to be determined.

If you wish to review your final exam, come to my office on January 16th between 1-3pm.

A grade of less than 40% on the final is an F regardless of the term work. 

Term test that are missed can be replaced by the corresponding grade on the final but only if a certificate from the dean's office is presented.  

Group homework is allowed (up to 4 people per group), just include all the names on the paper. Copied homework is discouraged and will receive a grade of zero -we don't want to mark the same thing twice.  

A word of warning.  Minitab output appears in all the term tests and the final so if you don't  practice working with Minitab on the homework you are bound to have trouble! 

 

Office Hours

Tuesday 9:00-11:00



Timetable

L1-Monday September 8: Class begins- Chapter 1 (scan it on your own), Chapter 2-1  see http://www.mste.uiuc.edu/reese/birthday/

L2-Wednesday September 10: Chapter 2-2 and 2.3.  OC curve for the lot acceptance scheme discussed in class. This curve was generated by

1) using patterned data to put the number of defectives into C1

2) turn on the command window and type

LET k1=GAMMA(51)/(GAMMA(7)*GAMMA(45))

LET C2=C1*GAMMA(51-C1)/(GAMMA(6)*GAMMA(46-C1))+GAMMA(51-C1)/(GAMMA(7)*GAMMA(45-C1))

LET C3=C2/k1

3) Go under graphics and do a scatterplot of C3 versus C1

Term test-Wednesday October 22: based on the material up to and including 5.1 Sample1
Sample2   Solution

Assignment 6:  1) The yield strength of steel cable is about 250 MPa where a Pascal is one  Newton per square meter. A bundle of steel cables is made of 20 cables each of diameter 2.4 cm with a standard
deviation of 0.2cm (you may assume the distribution of the diameters is normal and separate cables are independent).  Estimate the proportion of the bundles have a total yield strength less than 2.2 MegaNewtons by simulating 5000 bundles. Plot a histogram of the resulting bundle yield strengths. Make a Box plot as well.

Here is the histogramme of 5000 bundles. After sorting a proportion of 0.17 have strength less than 2.2 MegaNewtons.

Suggested Problems: Access the web site www.wiley.com
You must use the registration code in your textbook to access Wiley plus.  You will find the student solution manuel
of all odd numbered problems.

I will suggest a number of problems from the chapters we have done but first review the homework problems because they are closest to what I expect.
