Results of multiple regression for Defect

Summary measures
Multiple R 0.9383
R-Square 0.8803
Adj R-Square 0.8612
StErr of Est 7.2326

ANOVA Table
Source df SS MS F p-value
Explained 4 9621.5292 2405.3823 45.9828 0.0000
Unexplained 25 1307.7628 52.3105

Regression coefficients
Coefficient Std Err t-value p-value
Constant 1.0312 73.8985 0.0140 0.9890
Temperature 17.4189 9.5635 1.8214 0.0805

Morning -0.9186 3.0655 -0.2997 0.7669

Use the output above to answer parts (h) through (l).
h) Returning to the p-value for the indicator variable Morning, what conclusion can you draw?

i) Using non-technical language, state and interpret the standard error of the estimate.

j) Is Rate significant? What does Rate's significance or lack thereof imply about controlling the production quality? In particular, should you be slowing down the production rate as Ole has stated?

k) What action would you take to lower the number of defects? Be specific.

l) What is the expected number of defects when the standard deviation in temperature is 1, the density is 25, the rate is 200, and produced by the morning shift?

2. You have tested a new system that supposedly reduces variable costs of production. Because the new system involves additional expenditures, you calculated that you would be willing to use the new system only if variable cost would be less than $6.27 per unit produced. Based on careful data collection and analysis of the new system, you found that the average variable cost under the new system is $6.05.

Professional Business Writing: MACY'S

As the fund manager for a large mutual fund, you are preparing for a conference call with all your major investors. You plan to e-mail everyone with an attachment that will serve as a guide for the upcoming call. You know investors' time is limited, so you want to be focused in your brief report. Because there are numerous figures to discuss, you will be including 1 or more charts all in the same document.
For each of the following points, prepare both a paragraph of commentary and an appropriate chart to support it.

ââ?¬¢Find the last 4 years' sales and profit or net income data for a major retail corporation (MACY's)
ââ?¬¢Calculate profit as a percentage of sales; be careful to place the decimal point correctly.
ââ?¬¢Prepare a paragraph of explanation/interpretation of the data as if this were a small part of a lengthy report to potential investors.
ââ?¬¢Prepare a chart to display all the information in a meaningful way.
