Q1 . List and explain the properties of Algorithms.

Answer: Data structure  – Define an algorithm. What are the properties of an algorithm? – Feb 27, 2010, 11:15 am by Rajmeet Ghai

Define an algorithm. What are the properties of an algorithm? What are the types of algorithms?

An algorithm is a series of steps or methodology to solve a problem.

Properties of an algorithm:-

It is written in simple English.

 

 

 

Q2. Write a note on sequential search.

 

Answer: When data items are stored in a collection such as a list, we say that they have a linear or sequential relationship. Each data item is stored in a position relative to the others. In Python lists, these relative positions are the index values of the individual items. Since these index values are ordered, it is possible for us to visit them in sequence. This process gives rise to our first searching technique, the sequential search.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Q3. Explain topological sort with an example.

 

Answer: In computer science, a topological sort (sometimes abbreviated topsort or toposort) or topological ordering of a directed graph is a linear ordering of its vertices such that for every directed edge uv from vertex u to vertex v, u comes before v in the ordering. For instance, the vertices of the graph may represent tasks to be performed, and the edges may represent constraints that one task must be performed before another; in this application, a topological ordering is just a valid sequence for the tasks. A topological ordering is possible if and only if the graph has no directed cycles, that is, if it is a directed acyclic graph (DAG). Any DAG has at least one topological ordering, and algorithms are known for constructing a

 

 

 

  1. 4. Explain good-suffix and bad-character shift in Boyer-Moore algorithm.

 

Answer: In computer science, the Boyer–Moore string search algorithm is an efficient string searching algorithm that is the standard benchmark for practical string search literature. It was developed by Robert S. Boyer and J Strother Moore in 1977. The algorithm preprocesses the string being searched for (the pattern), but not the string being searched in (the text). It is thus well-suited for applications in which the pattern is much shorter than the text or where it persists across multiple searches. The Boyer-Moore algorithm uses information gathered during the preprocess step to skip sections of the text, resulting in a

 

 

 

  1. 5. Solve the Knapsack problem using memory functions.

Item 1 2 3 4

Weight 2 6 4 8

Value (in Rs.) 12 16 30 40

Knapsack capacity is given as W=12. Analyze the Knapsack problem using memory functions with the help of the values given above.

 

Answer:The classical Knapsack Problem (KP) can be described as follows. We are given a set N={1,…,n} of items, each of them with positive profit pj and positive weight wj, and a knapsack capacity c. The problem asks for a subset of items whose total weight does not exceed the knapsack capacity, and whose profit is a maximum. It can be formulated as the following Integer Linear Program (ILP):

(KP)max∑j∈Npjxj(1)

∑j∈Nwjxj≤c(2)

xj∈{0,1},j∈N.(3)

 

Each variable xj takes value 1 if and only if item j is

 

 

 

  1. 6. Describe Variable Length Encoding and Huffman Encoding.

 

Answer:Variable Length Encoding:In coding theory a variable-length code is a code which maps source symbols to a variable number of bits.Variable-length codes can allow sources to be compressed and decompressed with zero error (lossless data compression) and still be read back symbol by symbol. With the right coding strategy an independent and identically-distributed source may be compressed almost arbitrarily close to its entropy. This is in contrast to fixed length coding methods, for which data compression is only possible for large blocks of data, and any compression beyond the logarithm of the total number of possibilities comes with a finite (though perhaps arbitrarily small) probability of failure.Some examples of well-known variable-length coding strategies are Huffman coding, Lempel–Ziv coding and

Q6. Write an approximation algorithms for NP – Hard Problems.

 

Answer : In computer science and operations research, approximation algorithms are algorithms used to find approximate solutions to optimization problems. Approximation algorithms are often associated with NP-hard problems; since it is unlikely that there can ever be efficient polynomial-time exact algorithms solving NP-hard problems, one settles for polynomial-time sub-optimal solutions. Unlike heuristics, which usually only find

1 Describe about JDK. List and explain any five tools available in JDK.

 

Answer : The Java Development Kit (JDK) is an implementation of either one of the Java SE, Java EE or Java ME platforms[1] released by Oracle Corporation in the form of a binary product aimed at Java developers on Solaris, Linux, Mac OS X or Windows. The JDK includes a private JVM and a few other resources to finish the recipe to a Java Application.[2] Since the introduction of the Java platform, it has been by far the most widely used Software Development Kit (SDK).[citation needed] On 17 November 2006, Sun announced that it would be released under the GNU General Public License (GPL), thus making it free software.

 

 

 

2 Differentiate Break and Continue statements in Java with example program.

 

Answer : A break statement when applied to a loop ends the statement. A continue statement ends the iteration of the current loop and returns the control to the loop statement. If the break keyword is followed by an identifier that is the label of a random enclosing statement, execution transfers out of that enclosing statement. If the continue keyword is followed by an identifier that is the label of an enclosing loop, execution skips to the end of that loop instead.

 

break: breaks the current loop and moves the cursor

 

 

3 Differentiate between packages and Interfaces.

 

Answer : Packages

Definition:  A package is a grouping of related types providing access protection and name space management. Note that types refers to classes, interfaces, enumerations, and annotation types. Enumerations and annotation types are special kinds of classes and interfaces, respectively, so types are often referred to in this lesson simply as classes and interfaces.

To create a package, you choose a name for the package and put a package statement with that name at the top of every source file that

 

 

 

 

4 What are Applets? What are the restrictions of Applets? Describe about applet class.

 

Answer : What is an Applet in Java ?

An Applet is a small java program that runs in a Java enabled web browser. Java Applet is a small piece of java code that is embedded into HTML page, which gets executed when the HTML page loads into the browser.Applets provide powerful client-side functionality. As applets are loaded from remote machines and executed on client-side, there are various security restrictions on applets. –

5 Compare JDBC and ODBC

 

Answer : Typically, software applications are written in a specific programming language (such as Java, C#, etc.), while databases accept queries in some other database specific language (such as SQL). Therefore, when a software application needs to access data in a database, an interface that can translate languages to each other (application and database) is required. Otherwise, application programmers need to learn and incorporate database specific languages within their applications. ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) and JDBC (Java DatabBase Connectivity) are two interfaces that solve this specific problem. ODBC is a platform, language and operating system independent interface that can be used for this purpose. S

 

 

 

6 Describe about Java Beans and BeanBox.

 

Answer : A Java Bean is a reusable software component that can be manipulated visually in an application builder tool.  The idea is that one can start with a collection of such components, and quickly wire them together to form complex programs without actually writing any new code.

Software components must, in general, adopt standard techniques for interacting with the rest of the world.  For example, all GUI components inherit the java.awt.Component class, which means that one can rely on them to have certain standard methods like paint(), setSize(), etc.  Java Beans are not actually required to inherit a particular

1 Three machines A, B and C produce respectively 60%, 30% and 10% of the total number of items of a factory. The percentage of defective output of these machines are respectively 2%, 3% and 4%. An item is selected at random and is found to be defective. Find the probability that the item was produced by machine C.

 

Answer: Multiply the respective percentage of production by the percentage of defects for each machine

 

A = 60% * 2% = 1.2% of the factory’s total output are defects produced by Machine A

B = 30% * 3% = 0.9% of the factory’s total output are defects produced by Machine B

C = 10% * 4% = 0.4% of the factory’s total output are defects produced by Machine C

 

Therefore the total defects = 1.2% + 0.9% + 0.4% = 2.5%

Is a joint probability density function. Are X and Y independent?

 

Answer: Probability density function:- In probability theory and statistics, given two jointly distributed random variables X and Y, the conditional probability distribution of Y given X is the probability distribution of Y when X is known to be a particular value; in some cases the conditional probabilities may be expressed as functions containing the unspecified value x of X as a parameter. In case that both “X” and “Y” are categorical variables, a conditional probability table is typically used to represent the conditional probability. The conditional distribution

Answer: Methods of Freehands: It is familiar concept, briefly described for drawing frequency curves. In case of a time series a scatter diagram of the given observations is plotted against time on the horizontal axis and a freehand smooth curve is drawn through the plotted points. The curve is so drawn that most of the points concentrate around the curve, however, smoothness should not be scarified in trying to let the points exactly fall on the curve. It would be better to draw a straight line through the plotted points instead of a curve, if possible. The curve fitted by

This expression covers all related hardware components (wire, optical fiber, etc.) and software, including

 

  1. b) Execution Unit (EU)

 

Answer:In computer engineering, an execution unit (also called a functional unit) is a part of the central processing unit (CPU) that performs the operations and calculations as instructed by the computer program. It may have its own internal control sequence unit, which is not to be confused with the CPU’s main control unit, some registers, and other internal units such as a sub–arithmetic logic unit (sub-ALU) or a floating point unit (FPU), or some smaller and more specific components.  It is common for modern

 

 

 

 

  1. 3. Write short notes on:

 

  1. a) REP Prefix

 

Answer:If the direction flag is clear, the CPU increments ESI and EDI after operating upon each string element. For example, if the direction flag is clear, then executing MOVS will move the byte, word, or double word at ESI to EDI and will increment ESI and EDI by one, two, or four. When specifying the REP prefix before this instruction, the CPU increments ESI and EDI for each element in the string. At completion, the ESI and EDI registers will be pointing at the first item beyond the strings.

 

 

 

  1. b) Table Translation

 

Answer:A translation lookaside buffer (TLB) is a cache that memory management hardware uses to improve virtual address translation speed. The majority of desktop, laptop, and server processors includes one or more TLBs in the memory management hardware, and it is nearly always present in any hardware that utilizes paged or segmented virtual memory.

 

The TLB is sometimes implemented as content-addressable memory (CAM). The CAM search key is the virtual address and the search

 

 

 

 

 

  1. 4. Describe about Key-code Data Formats and FIFO Status Word formats.

 

Answer:Key Code Qualifier is an error-code returned by a SCSI device.

 

When a SCSI target device returns a check condition in response to a command, the initiator usually then issues a SCSI Request Sense command. This process is part of a SCSI protocol called Contingent Allegiance Condition. The target will respond to the Request Sense command with a set of SCSI sense data which includes three fields giving increasing levels of detail about the error:

Answer:In telecommunications, RS-232 is a standard for serial communication transmission of data. It formally defines the signals connecting between a DTE (data terminal equipment) such as a computer terminal, and a DCE (data circuit-terminating equipment, originally defined as data communication equipment), such as a modem. The RS-232 standard is commonly used in computer serial ports. The standard defines the electrical characteristics and timing of signals, the meaning of signals, and the physical size

 

 

 

(b) IEEE 488 standard

 

Answer:IEEE-488 is a short-range digital communications 8-bit parallel multi-master interface bus specification. It was created in the late 1960s for use with automated test equipment and is still in use for that purpose. IEEE-488 was created as HP-IB (Hewlett-Packard Interface Bus) and is commonly called GPIB (General Purpose Interface Bus). It has been the subject of several standards.

Value Stream Mapping (VSM)

Answer: Value stream mapping is a lean tool that employs a flow diagram documenting in high detail every step of a process. Many lean practitioners see value stream mapping as the fundamental tool to identify waste, reduce process cycle times, and implement process improvement. Some organizations treat the value stream map as the hallmark of their lean efforts.

In analyzing value steam maps, it has occurred to me that some may have been created primarily as heuristic tools to teach lean concepts. It seemed as if

 

 

Advantages of the VSM

  1. It’s quick and easy to learn
  2. It helps portray the process from the start of the production process to the end
  3. It help finds bottlenecks
  4. It helps find waste within the process
  5. It’s a group excersise and therefore can involve your workforce as part of your lean improvement program
  6. You can use a completed value stream map as an improvement aide to document transitions to a future state value stream map
  7. Its an inexpensive tool – all you need is a paper and pen!
  8. It can be easily critiqued by your workforce (using post it notes) to highlight problems that exist within the process
  9. It’s not just for manufacturing! Value stream mapping has been used in offices, service industries healthcare etc.
  10. It’s easy to understand – With a little bit of training on VSM icons – maps are easy to understand conveying powerfull process in a simple pictorial fashion.

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 – Gobel & Partner (G&P) – who saw it as an opportunity to introduce innovations and boost investment in its Qtrak 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.’ ”

The strategy used by MTR is capacity expansion strategy. As it is clear that the company is planning a capacity expansion in spices.

 

Explanation on the facts fitting the strategy:

 

In fact, adopting capacity expansion can encourage the manufacturer to reduce the amount of production in the first period, which indirectly alleviates the cost of holding inventory. In addition, the manufacturer can take advantage of producing a

 

Q.5 Explain any four direct benefits of outsourcing with examples.

 

Ans : Outsourcing as an idea is not novice; it has been for over a thousand years now, the only difference being that it’s gaining lot more popularity since a decade for whatever reasons. Outsourcing basically means asking a third-party vendor to work for you on a contractual basis. Companies outsource primarily to cut costs. But today, it is not only about cutting cost but also about reaping the benefits of strategic outsourcing such as accessing skilled expertise, reducing overhead, flexible staffing, and increasing efficiency

 

Q.6 Describe the supplier integration approach.

 

Ans : Explanation of the stages of supplier integration :

 

The possible forms of supplier integration can be framed within the context of the “generic” new product development process shown in Figure . The new product development process is a series of interdependent, often overlapping stages during which a new product (or process or service) is brought from the idea stage to readiness for

  1. 3. Elaborate the different modules under manufacturing and production planning

 

Answer:Traditionally production planning software was a separate package or an independingly functioning module in Standard ERP. The level of administration needed was high and reporting took a long time.  Standard ERP has a different approach to supporting MRP production planning. Being tightly integrated to other processes makes the information support to production very efficient. It uses the same principle as other modules and processes, so it is very easy to add production to an existing installation.  You will be able to run all standard production operations like technology base, production logistics,

  1. 1. Define operations strategy. What are the differences between manufacturing and service organisations in terms of operations strategy?

Definition of operations

List and explain differences between manufacturing and service organisations in terms of operations strategy

Answer:The Operation is a Jobs or tasks consisting of one or more elements or subtasks, performed typically in one location.  Operations transform resource or data inputs into desired goods, services, or results, and create and deliver value to the customers. Two or more connected operations constitute a process, and are generally divided into four basic

 

 

 

 

  1. 2. Explain the characteristics of services.

Answer: A service is an act or performance offered by one party to another. They are economic activities that create value and provide benefits for customers at specific times and places as a result of bringing desired change. Service is an act or performance offered by one party to another. They are economic activities that create value and provide benefits for customers at specific times and places as a result of bringing about a desired change in or on behalf of the recipient of the service. The term service is not limited to personal services like medical

 

  1. 3. What is inventory control? Explain the factors considered in inventory control.

Answer: Inventory control is a simple matter for businesses that sell only one or two products. However, as companies diversify their merchandise, they face a number of challenges related to inventory control. If not handled well, these challenges can result in a loss of revenue stemming from the misplacement, over-procurement or under-procurement of inventory.  A component of supply chain management, inventory management supervises the flow of goods from manufacturers to warehouses and from these facilities to point of sale. A key function of inventory management is to keep a detailed record of each new or returned product as it enters or leaves

 

 

  1. 4.Explain the applications of queuing models

Answer: Queueing theory is the mathematical study of waiting lines, or queues. In queueing theory a model is constructed so that queue lengths and waiting times can be predicted. Queueing theory is generally considered a branch of operations research because the results are often used when making business decisions about the resources needed to provide a service.  Queueing theory has its origins in research by Agner Krarup Erlang when he created models to describe the Copenhagen telephone exchange. The ideas have since seen

 

  1. 5.Write short notes on Markov analysis.

Answer: Markov analysis is a Statistical technique used in forecasting the future behavior of a variable or system whose current state or behavior does not depend on its state or behavior at any time in the past in other words, it is random. For example, in the flipping of a coin, the probability of a flip coming up heads is the same regardless of whether the previous result was heads or tails. In accounting, Markov analysis is used in estimating bad debt or uncollectible accounts receivable. In marketing, it is used in modeling future brand loyalty of consumers

 

  1. 6. Describe the various types of decision making models.

List the models

Describe the 3 decision making models

Answer: When we speak of rational behavior, we should remember that our focus in this discussion is not on making decisions, but rather on how to support the process of making decisions. Managers are change agents, not just decision makers, so the steps before and after a decision are as important as the actual choice of action. Preparatory steps include creating tension for change, understanding the positions of the various constituencies, and developing political support for a chosen action. Steps after the decision include naming the change monitor and identifying the monitoring methods. Therefore, the mission of good information system is broader

Q1.Statistics plays a vital role in almost every facet of human life. Describe the functions of Statistics. Explain the applications of statistics.

 

Answer: Statistics :

 

A type of mathematical analysis involving the use of quantified representations, models and summaries for a given set of empirical data or real world observations. Statistical analysis involves the process of collecting and analyzing data and then summarizing the data into a numerical form. Statistics is a general term used to summarize a process that an analyst, mathematician or statistician can use to characterize a data set. If the data set is based on a sample of a larger population, then the analyst can

 

 

Q2.

  1. a) Explain the approaches to define probability.

Answer: In some areas, such as mathematics or logic, results of some process can be known with certainty (e.g., 2+3=5). Most real life situations, however, involve variability and uncertainty. For example, it is uncertain whether it will rain tomorrow; the price of a given stock a week from today is uncertain Note_1 ; the number of claims that a car insurance policy holder will make over a one-year period

 

 

  1. b) State the addition and multiplication rules of probability giving an example of each case.

Answer: Addition rule of probability and an example:

 

If two events A and B are mutually exclusive then

P(A ∪B) = P(A) +P(B)

This is the simplified version of the Addition Law. However, when A and B are not mutually

exclusive, A ∩B _= ∅, it can be shown that a more general law applies:

P(A ∪B) = P(A) +P(B)−P(A ∩B)

Of course if A ∩ B = ∅ then, since P(∅) = 0 this general expression reduces to the simpler

version.

 

Example:A bag contains 20 marbles, 3 are

 

 

Q3. a) The procedure of testing hypothesis requires a researcher to adopt several steps. Describe in brief all such steps.

Answer. Meaning of hypothesis can be defined in two ways:

1.It is a supposition or explanation (theory) that is provisionally accepted in order to interpret certain events or phenomena, and to provide guidance for further investigation. A hypothesis may be proven correct or wrong, and must be capable of refutation. If it remains unrefuted by facts, it is said to be verified or corroborated.

2.Statistics:It is an assumption about certain characteristics of a population. If it specifies values for every parameter of a population, it is called a simple hypothesis; if not, a composite hypothesis. If it attempts to nullify the difference between two sample means (by suggesting that the difference is of no statistical significance), it is called a null hypothesis.

 

  1. b) Explain the components of time series.

Answer. Components of Time series:

 

The four components of time series are:

 

  1. Secular trend
  2. Seasonal variation
  3. Cyclical variation
  4. Irregular variation

 

  1. Secular trend:

 

 

 

Q4. a. What is a Chi-square test? Point out its applications. Under what conditions is this test applicable?

Answer : Chi-square test:

 

A chi-squared test, also referred to as chi-square test or χ² test, is any statistical hypothesis test in which the sampling distribution of the test statistic is a chi-squared distribution when the null hypothesis is true. Also considered a chi-squared test is a test in which this is asymptotically true, meaning that the sampling distribution (if the null hypothesis is true) can be made to approximate a chi-squared distribution as closely as desired by making the sample size large enough.

 

Applications:

 

 

 

Q5.Business forecasting acquires an important place in every field of the economy. Explain the objectives and theories of Business forecasting.

 

Answer: : Business forecasting :

 

Business Forecasting is an estimate or prediction of future developments in business such as sales, expenditures, and profits. Given the wide swings in economic activity and the drastic effects these fluctuations can have on profit margins, it is not surprising that business forecasting has emerged as one of the most important aspects of corporate planning. Forecasting has become an invaluable tool for businesspeople to anticipate economic trends and prepare themselves either to benefit from or to counteract them.

 

 

 

 

Q6 a. What is analysis of variance? What are the assumptions of the technique?

Answer : Analysis of variance :

 

Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is a collection of statistical models used to analyse the differences between group means and their associated procedures (such as “variation” among and between groups). In ANOVA setting, the observed variance in a particular variable is partitioned into components attributable to different sources of variation. In its simplest form, ANOVA provides a statistical test of whether or not the means of several groups are equal, and therefore generalizes t-test to more than two groups. Doing multiple two-sample t
