  1. 1. Describe the Process of Quality Control.

[Description of the steps of quality control(list the sub-steps under each step)]

 

Answer: The quality control process is divided into three separate processes, ensuring that specialized expertise is applied to each stage of our operation. This system also provides the redundancy necessary to prevent any quality problem from evading detection. It is a process through which a business seeks to ensure that product quality is maintained or improved and manufacturing errors are reduced or

 

 

  1. 2. What is meant by the capacity of a facility? Explain the different types of capacity

[Define capacity of a facility and Explain the different types of capacities]

 

Answer:The term ‘capacity’ means a “constraint” or an upper limit. Determining the right level of capacity is one of the most challenging tasks facing managers. Having too much capacity relative to demand means incurring sizable costs to an unused capacity. Having too low capacity means that the demand from some customers may be unfilled. These customers may go to other sources of supply and never return. Therefore, it is equally

 

 

  1. 3. What are the factors affecting MRP. State the advantages and drawbacks of MRP

 

 

Answer: The marginal revenue product of labour (MRP) is the additional revenue gained by selling the output of one additional worker. The MRP is calculated by multiplying the marginal physical product of an individual worker (MPP) by marginal revenue (MR). Marginal Revenue Product = Marginal Physical Product x Marginal Revenue The concept is based on the assumption that the firm’s product is sold in a perfectly competitive

 

 

 

  1. 4. Arrange the following steps used in the process of production scheduling in a sequential order and briefly explain each of them:

a. Preparing an MPS

b. Assigning jobs to different work centres

c. Developing an aggregate production schedule

[Arrange of steps in sequential order, Explain steps]

 

 

  1. 5. Write short notes on. Safety stock World class manufacturing

[Safety stock(Explanation of safety stock and its importance)

World class manufacturing (Explanation of world class manufacturing and its principles)]

 

Answer:Explanation of safety stock and its importance: Safety stock is an additional quantity of an item held in inventory in order to reduce the risk that the item will be out of stock. Safety stock acts as a buffer in case the sales of an item are greater than planned and/or the supplier is unable to deliver additional units at the expected time.

 

 

  1. 6. What factors need to be taken into consideration while designing a product?

[Define product design,

Explain its importance, and

Discuss the different factors needs to be considered while designing a product]

 

Answer: Product design is the process of creating a new product to be sold by a business to its customers. A very broad concept, it is essentially the efficient and effective generation and development of ideas through a process that leads to new products.

 

Project design is the determination and specification of the parts of a product and their interrelationship so that they become a unified whole. The design must satisfy a broad array of requirements in a condition of balanced effectiveness. A product is designed to perform a particular function or set of functions effectively and reliably, to be economically manufacturable, to be profitably salable, to suit the purposes and the attitudes of the consumer, and to be durable, safe, and economical to operate.

 

For instance, the design must take into consideration the particular manufacturing facilities, available materials, know-how, and economic resources of the manufacturer. The product may need to be packaged; usually it will also need to be shipped so that it should be light in weight and sturdy of construction. The product should appear significant, effective, compatible with the culture, and appear to be worth more than the price. See Production engineering, Production planning.

 

The factors that determine or affect a product design are as follows:

  1. Requirements of targeted customers.
  2. Availability and access to necessary production facilities.
  3. Type and quality of raw-materials used to produce a product.
  4. Cost to price ratio.
  5. Policy of quality standards.
  6. Availability of plant and machineries.
  7. Impact of upcoming product on existing products of the company.
  8. Reputation or goodwill of the company.

Best Supplier Relationship Management: Jaguar Land Rover and Gobble & Partner Jaguar Land Rover production line 8 October 2013 | CIPS Supply Management Awards 2013

“Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) transformed its position in customer satisfaction surveys and enhanced the quality of its products through an innovative partnership with a key supplier.

By re-evaluating the way it deals with quality control and suppliers, Jaguar took top spot in the 2012 JD Power Survey for customer satisfaction and Land Rover raced up the chart. In 2008, the survey put Jaguar at nine and Land Rover at 34 for quality, described by JLR as “clearly an unsatisfactory situation” for a premium brand and stated that “something had to change”.

Component quality was identified as the key issue – for some suppliers the proportion of rejected parts was as high as 65 per cent – and some finished vehicles were being put into ‘containment’ due to faulty components. This had knock-on effects including

delayed customer shipments, production line stoppages that cost £2,000 per minute and the risk that faulty parts could make their way into completed vehicles.

At the time, JLR was working with 16 different suppliers across three factories to undertake parts rework and containment, resulting in differing quality regimes and an inability to share data across the company. As a result, there was no single view of any given supplier’s quality history, which made preventative action impossible. A new director of quality was appointed who launched a review of quality across the supply chain that identified potential improvements that could be made to the inspection of incoming components from suppliers. The Inbound Materials Project was established and the 16 suppliers dealing with quality control were reduced to one – Gobble & Partner (G&P) – who saw it as an opportunity to introduce innovations and boost investment in its Trek quality management system, which totals £2 million to date.

This evolved into a partnership between JLR and G&P. Both realised that prevention was better than cure, and through Qtrak they could identify the component suppliers causing the most problems. Those with a recurrent history of reject parts were subject to a more rigorous inspection regime. G&P’s aim is to ensure no faulty part ever arrives at JLR production facilities and they now work on the premises of high-risk suppliers to review quality processes. The firm is also working at JLR’s new plant in China to ensure the right quality approach is in place from the beginning.

Over six years, the relationship between the firms has evolved from a traditional adversarial situation, where G&P were treated as one of a number of commodity suppliers, to one where the two are working to the same goal of “bringing premium quality to premium brands”.Wolfram Leidtke, JLR board quality director, said: “JLR is a premium brand and accordingly needs to have premium quality vehicles. Procurement has aligned with this objective. G&P has been able to transfer their global knowledge and work with JLR to develop a new approach to incoming material quality and the results are starting to speak for themselves.’ ”

  1. What are the elements and objectives of operations management?[Define operations management andExplain its elementsExplain its objectives]

 

Answer: Operations Management deals with the design and management of products, processes, services and supply chains. It considers the acquisition, development, and utilization of resources that firms need to deliver the goods and services their clients want.

 

The purvey of OM ranges from strategic to tactical and operational levels. Representative strategic issues include determining the size and location of manufacturing plants, deciding the structure of service or telecommunications networks, and designing technology supply chains.

 

 

 

  1. Explain operations research models.

[Give the classification of various models and discuss the models]

 

Answer: Most operations research studies involve the construction of a mathematical model. The model is a collection of logical and mathematical relationships that represents aspects of the situation under study.

2 How are research designs classified? What are the distinguishing features of each? Differentiate by giving appropriate examples.

Answer : The research design refers to the overall strategy that you choose to integrate the different components of the study in a coherent and logical way, thereby, ensuring you will effectively address the research problem; it constitutes the blueprint for the collection, measurement, and analysis of data.

Action Research Design

 

 

3 Discuss with the help of examples the four key levels of measurement. What mathematical operations/statistical techniques are and are not permissible on data from each type of scale?

Answer : 4 Levels of Measurement

 

Nominal Scale

The nominal scale (also called dummy coding) simply places people, events, perceptions, etc. into categories based on some common trait. Some data are naturally suited to the nominal scale such as males vs. females, redheads vs. blondes vs. brunettes, and African American vs. Asian. The nominal scale forms the basis for such analyses as Analysis

 

 

 

4 Processing of data involves editing, coding, classifying and tabulating. Explain each of these steps by taking an appropriate example.

Answer : After collecting data, the method of converting raw data into meaningful statement; includes data processing, data analysis, and data interpretation and presentation.

 

Data reduction or processing mainly involves various manipulations necessary for preparing the data for analysis. The process (of manipulation) could be manual or electronic. It involves editing, categorizing the open-ended questions, coding, computerization and preparation of tables and diagrams.

 

 

 

5 Distinguish between the following:

 

  1. Null hypothesis and Alternative hypothesis

Answer : The Null Hypothesis

 

The null hypothesis reflects that there will be no observed effect for our experiment. In a mathematical formulation of the null hypothesis there will typically be an equal sign. This hypothesis is denoted by H0.

 

 

 

  1. One tailed and two tailed tests

Answer : A one- or two-tailed t-test is determined by whether the total area of a is placed in one tail or divided equally between the two tails. The one-tailed t-test is performed if the results are interesting only if they turn out in a particular direction. The two-tailed t-test is performed if the results would be interesting in either direction. The choice of a one- or two-tailed t-test effects the hypothesis testing procedure in a number of different ways.

 

 

 

  1. Type I and Type II error

Answer : Type I error

 

A type I error occurs when one rejects the null hypothesis when it is true. The probability of a type I error is the level of significance of the test of hypothesis, and is denoted by *alpha*. Usually a one-tailed test of hypothesis is is used when one talks

 

 

  1. One way and two way analysis of variance

Answer : The two-way analysis of variance is an extension to the one-way analysis of variance. There are two independent variables (hence the name two-way).

 

Assumptions

 

  • The populations from which the samples were obtained must be normally or approximately normally distributed.
  • The samples must be independent.
  • The variances of the populations must be equal.

 

 

 

  1. Descriptive and inferential analysis of data

Answer : Descriptive Statistics :

 

Descriptive statistics includes statistical procedures that we use to describe the population we are studying. The data could be collected from either a sample or a population, but the results help us organize and describe data. Descriptive statistics can only be used to describe the group that is being studying. That is, the results cannot be generalized to any larger group.

 

 

 

6 a. What is Chi-square test of goodness of fit? What precautions are necessary while applying this test? Point out its role in business decision making.

Answer :

Chi-square is a statistical test commonly used to compare observed data with data we would expect to obtain according to a specific hypothesis. For example, if, according to Mendel’s laws, you expected 10 of 20 offspring from a cross to be male and the actual observed number was 8 males, then you might want to know about the “goodness to fit” between the observed and expected. Were the deviations (differences between observed

Answer:TCP/IP networks route data between hosts in packets and packets and packets from many hosts are interspersed on a link, This is called packet switching.

 

Packet switching can be contrasted to circuit switching in which a circuit is exclusively dedicated to a session for its duration. The telephone network is a familiar example of circuit switching. A dedicated physical circuit is established between two points from the time a call begins until it ends.

 

 

  1. 2. List and explain the advantages of virtual path connection (VPC).

 

Answer:Virtual paths offer a way of presenting the structure of the folders and files on a Web page or FTP server, largely independent of the content structure on the actual server. Virtual paths allow Web developers to streamline the user experience and avoid exposing the inner workings of a website.

 

Simplified network architecture: Network transport functions can be separated into those related to an individual logical connection (virtual channel) and those related to a group of logical connections (virtual path). Increased network performance and reliability: The network deals with fewer, aggregated entities. Reduced processing and short connection setup time: Much of the work is done when the virtual path is set up.

 

 

  1. 3. Write a note on Network Attached Storage (NAS).

 

Answer: Network-attached storage (NAS) is a dedicated hard disk storage device that provides file-based data storage services to other devices on the network. A network-attached storage (NAS) device is a server that is dedicated to nothing more than file sharing. NAS does not provide any of the activities that a server in a server-centric system typically provides, such as email, authentication or file management.

 

Network-attached storage (NAS) is a dedicated hard disk storage device that is set up with its own network address and provides file-based data storage services to other devices on the network.

 

 

  1. 4.What are the objectives that are defined for frame relay congestion control?

 

Answer: Frame relay has evolved from X.25 packet switching and objective is to reduce network delays, protocol overheads and equipment cost. Error correction is done on an end-to-end basis rather than a link -to-link basis as in X.25 switching. Frame relay can support multiple users over the same line and can establish a permanent virtual circuit or a switched virtual circuit.

 

Performance Parameters

The following parameters are defined by the ITU

 

 

  1. 5. What are the seven timers that TCP maintains for every connection? Explain any three.

 

Answer:It is important to understand TCP if one is to understand the historic, current and future architecture of the Internet protocols. Most applications on the Internet make use of TCP, relying upon its mechanisms that ensure safe delivery of data across an unreliable IP layer below. In this paper we explore the fundamental concepts behind TCP and how it is used to transport data between two endpoints.

 

The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) standard is defined in the Request For Comment (RFC) standards document number 793 [10] by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The original specification written in 1981 was based on earlier research and experimentation in the original ARPANET. The design of TCP was heavily

 

 

  1. 6. a) What is Multicasting? Explain.

b) What are the advantages of Multicasting?

 

Answer:Multicast is communication between a single sender and multiple receivers on a network.Multicast is communication between a single sender and multiple receivers on a network. Typical uses include the updating of mobile personnel from a home office and the periodic issuance of online newsletters. Together with anycast and unicast, multicast is one of the packet types in the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6).

 

Multicast is supported through wireless data

  1. 1. Differentiate between TCP and UDP.

Answer:  Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) are the major protocols operating at Transport Layer. Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) operate very differently and you can choose Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or User Datagram Protocol (UDP) depending on your

 

 

  1. 2. Describe the features of XML. What are the important rules to keep in mind about the XML declaration?

 

Answer:The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a general-purpose markup language. It is classified as an extensible language because it allows its users to define their own elements. Its primary purpose is to facilitate the sharing of structured data across different information systems, particularly via the Internet. It is used both to encode documents and serialize data.

XML is a framework for defining markup languages:

  • There is no fixed collection of mark up tags.
  • Each XML language is targeted as its own application domain, but the language will share many features.
  • There is a common set of generic tools for processing documents.

 

 

 

  1. 3. List and explain the Components of XML processor.

 

Answer: When XML is processed, usually there is more to it than one input, on transform, and one output. Rarely is the input in exactly the right format, and rarely can the output be put right where it belongs. And seldom is the transformation which does not require lookups or including data from other sources.

 

  • XML Processing Control Structures: In addition to being able to route queries by Path, conditions can be forced to emit warnings or even to stop the pipeline with an error. This is valuable where you want to validate

 

  1. 4.Describe the procedure of fetching data from XML to HTML. Give an example..

 

Answer: It is possible to design a HTML form structure such that it embeds all data content and structure of some XML data such that the XML data are displayed in the fields of the HTML form. The HTML form and the XML data are then logically equivalent in terms of the contents of the XML data. It is then possible to convert automatically between them from a web browser with a single program for any XML data.

 

In other words, given some data-centric XML data, we

 

 

  1. 5. Describe five different categories of PHP Operators.

 

Answer:Operators are a special type of symbols, which are used for calculation and comparison in a programming language. Operators are also used to operate on values. There are six types operators in PHP, which are as follows:

 

Arithmetic Operators: These operators are used for calculation like add, subtraction, multiplication, division and modulation.

  • Plus Operator (+) :- This operator is used for add two or more numbers. This is known as addition operator.
  • Minus Operator (-) :- This operator is

 

  1. 6. Describe about ASP. Explain the working of ASP.

 

Answer:ASP is also an abbreviation for application service provider.

 

An Active Server Page (ASP) is an HTML page that includes one or more scripts (small embedded programs) that are processed on a Microsoft Web server before the page is sent to the user. An ASP is somewhat similar to a server-side include or a common gateway interface (CGI) application in that all involve programs that run on the server, usually tailoring a page for the user. Typically, the script in the Web page at the server uses input received as the result of the user’s request for the page to access data from a database and then builds

  1. 1. What is Multiple-inheritance? Explain with an example.

 

Answer:Multiple inheritance is a feature of some object-oriented computer programming languages in which an object or class can inherit characteristics and features from more than one parent object or parent class.

 

Multiple inheritance refers to a feature of some object-oriented programming languages in which a class can inherit behaviors and features from more

 

 

  1. 2. What is incremental testing? Explain the ways used to perform incremental testing.

 

Answer:Incremental testing is a way of integration testing in which first you test each module of the software individually then continue testing by adding another module to it then another.
Its proper explanation is “An integration testing strategy in which you test subsystems in isolation, and then continue testing as you integrate more and more subsystems”.

Incremental testing is partial testing of a sketchy product. The objective of incremental testing is to provide an earlier feedback to software developers.

 

 

 

  1. 3. List and explain the four phases of the object modeling technique

 

Answer: The object-modeling technique (OMT) is an object modeling approach for software modeling and designing. It was developed around 1991 by Rumbaugh, Blaha, Premerlani, Eddy and Lorensen as a method to develop object-oriented systems and to support object-oriented programming.

 

Four phases of the object modeling technique:

  • Analysis: The analysis phase starts with a problem statement, and its purpose is to develop the initial problem statement by providing a list of requirements for developers, managers and users. The initial problem statement is

 

  1. 4.Explain the different states of activity diagram.

 

Answer: Activity diagrams are often used to model business processes. They simply and quite plainly show how things work, and so function as a good aid to discussions of aspects of the workflow with the domain experts. These are less abstract than the often used object-oriented state machine diagrams.  Activity diagrams are an essential part of the modeling process. They are used to clarify complicated use cases, illustrate control among objects, or to show the logic of an algorithm. The UML 2.0 metamodel substantially refined and improved Activity diagrams; whereas the UML 1.4 Activity diagram was a subclass of State Machine,

 

  1. 5. What are the activities in the object oriented design process using unified approach?

 

Answer:Object-oriented analysis and design (OOAD) is a popular technical approach to analyzing, designing an application, system, or business by applying the object-oriented paradigm and visual modeling throughout the development life cycles to foster better stakeholder communication and product quality.

 

According to the popular guide Unified Process, OOAD in modern software engineering is best conducted in an iterative and incremental way. Iteration by iteration, the outputs of OOAD activities, analysis models for OOA and design models for OOD

 

 

 

  1. 6. What are the rules for developing usability testing?

 

Answer:Usability testing is a technique used in user-centered interaction design to evaluate a product by testing it on users. This can be seen as an irreplaceable usability practice, since it gives direct input on how real users use the system. This is in contrast with usability inspection methods where experts use different methods to evaluate a user interface without involving users.  Usability testing focuses on measuring a human-made product’s capacity to meet its intended purpose.
