## CHECK THESE SAMPLES OF Statistic Assignment on Variables, Programming Models and Contribution Per Unit

...Introduction Determination of different cost drivers for overhead costs in a manufacturing firm is very important, as it helps in decision-making. For example, when the factors that are **contributing** most to the overhead costs are known, it becomes easy to control such costs. This report will involve analysis of different **variables** that are believed to affect overhead costs, including number of setups, machines hours and labour hours. Some of the methods of analysis that will be used include descriptive **statistics**, regression analysis, and use of histograms and graphs. Section A - characteristics of all the **variables** Calculating measures of location (averages) and...

...it in ordered list OPEN list.
Create a list CLOSED. This is initially an empty list.
Each node 'n' maintains the following:
g(n) = the cost of getting from the natal node to 'n'
h(n) = the estimate, according to the heuristic function, of the cost of getting from n to the goal node.
f(n) = g(n) + h(n); intuitively, this is the estimate of the best solution that goes through n.
If OPEN is empty, exit with failure in algorithm.
Select first node on OPEN. Remove it from OPEN and put it on CLOSED. This is node 'n'.
If 'n' is goal node, exit the **program**. The solution is obtained by treating a path backwards along arcs in the tree from the node to n.
Expand node n. This will generate successors.
Read the list OPEN...

The objective function can be derived as:
Z = 40M + 50 R = Maximum
The coefficients of objective function are the values of profit **per** **unit** of each product and are calculated by subtracting the total costs from the selling price.
Here,
Z = Objective Function
M = Number of Masso
R = Number of Russo
This **model** can be developed in Excel as shown in Figure 3.1.

The first assumption of the above **model** is the assumption... of independence. This implies that the production of both products is independent of each other and so is their impact on the number of machining or assembly hours. Therefore, the two effects can be added to each other.
The second assumption is the assumption of linearity. In...
