Statistical Analysis of Simulation Results
" A company produces a product on a number of machines. Each machine generates between $200 and $400 of revenue per day according to the uniform probability distribution. When a machine breaks down, it must be repaired, and the repair time may take 1, 2, or 3 days to be completed according to the following probability distribution:
Repair time in Days  Probability

1  0.60
2  0.25
3  0.15
The company would like to know whether it should purchase a backup machine at a cost of $6000. The management has decided that if the loss of revenue due to machine downtime was $5000 or more per year, then a backup machine should be purchased."
"In order to perform the comparison, the management decided to develop a simulation model for this situation. To develop this model, they first needed to know the time between breakdowns. According to their estimate, the time between breakdowns is between 0 and 8 weeks, with the probability increasing the longer the machine went without breaking down. Thus the probability distribution of breakdowns looked like the following: OPEN ATTACHED FILE TO VIEW IMAGE
1. Need assistance with performing an annual simulation and determine the loss of revenue due to machine breakdown. Next, need assistance deciding whether a backup machine would be needed. Need assistance showing all work and explanation for solution.
