JET Copies Case Problem, Applied Statistics

Read the “JET Copies” Case Problem on pages 678-679 of the text. Using simulation estimate the loss of revenue due to copier breakdown for one year, as follows:

1. In Excel, use a suitable method for generating the number of days needed to repair the copier, when it is out of service, according to the discrete distribution shown.
2.
2. In Excel, use a suitable method for simulating the interval between successive
breakdowns, according to the continuous distribution shown.

3. In Excel, use a suitable method for simulating the lost revenue for each day the copier is out of service.

4. Put all of this together to simulate the lost revenue due to copier breakdowns over 1 year to answer the question asked in the case study.

5. In a word processing program, write a brief description/explanation of how you
implemented each component of the model. Write 1-2 paragraphs for each component of the model (days-to-repair; interval between breakdowns; lost revenue; putting it
together).

6. Answer the question posed in the case study. How confident are you that this answer is a MAT540 Student Version 201005 Page 6 of 19 good one? What are the limits of the study? Write at least one paragraph.
There are two deliverables for this Case Problem, the Excel spreadsheet and the written
description/explanation. Please submit both of them electronically via the dropbox
