Quantitative Analysis for Business Management Essay

Order Details
There are multiple assignments here and all are outlined on a one document which I will attach. I will also upload the electronic version of my book. Please note that this is not just one assignment but the entire course content. I have erred on the side of caution and paid for extra pages to accomodate. The following is a copied version of the document that I will upload for you along with my book.
ASSIGMENT #1
ABC Manufacturing has 6 machines that perform a particular task. Breakdowns occur frequently for this machine. Past records indicate that the number of breakdowns that occur each day is described by the probability distribution seen below:
(a) What is the expected number of breakdowns in any given day?
(b) What is the variance for this distribution?
(c) What is the probability that there will be at least 2 breakdowns in a day?
Your response should be at least 200 words in length. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
Unit II Case Study
Read the Case Study on pages 110-111 of the textbook entitled “Starting Right Corporation.”
Once you have finished reading the Case Study, answer the associated Discussion Questions 1-6 in a minimum three-page paper.
Your paper should be appropriately cited using APA style. You should also include a minimum of two scholarly sources
SKIP Unit III, (I will do this assignment)
Unit IV Case Study
Read the Case Study on page 300 of the textbook on “Mexicana Wire Works.” Thoroughly answer the three associated Discussion Questions using appropriate citation and clearly delineated tables and graphs when necessary. The Discussion Questions are provided on page 301.
Read the Case Study on page 339 of the textbook on the “Chase Manhattan Bank.” Thoroughly answer the three associated Discussion Questions on page 339 using appropriate citation and clearly delineated tables and graphs when necessary.
Both case studies should be answered in a minimum three- to four-page paper using appropriate APA style.
Unit V
A package express carrier is considering expanding the fleet of aircraft used to transport packages. Of primary importance is that there is a total of $350 million allocated for purchases. Two types of aircraft may be purchased – the C1A and the C1B. The C1A costs $25 million, while the C1B costs $18 million. The C1A can carry 60,000 pounds of packages, while the C1B can only carry 40,000 pounds of packages. Of secondary importance is that the company needs at least 10 new aircraft. It takes 150 hours per month to maintain the C1A, and 100 hours to maintain the C1B. The least level of importance is that there are a total of 1,200 hours of maintenance time available per month.
Part 1: Formulate this as an integer programming problem to maximize the number of pounds that may be carried.
Part 2: Rework the problem differently than in Part 1 to suppose the company decides that what is most important to them is that they keep the ratio of C1Bs to C1As in their fleet as close to 1.2 as possible to allow for flexibility in serving their routes. Formulate the goal programming representation of this problem, with the other three goals having priorities P2, P3, and P4, respectively.
Your response should be at least 200 words in length. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.

The C1A can carry 60,000 pounds of packages, while the C1B can only carry 40,000 pounds of packages. The company needs at least eight new aircraft. In addition, the firm wishes to purchase at least twice as many C1Bs as C1As. Formulate this as an integer programming problem to maximize the number of pounds that may be carried.
Your response should be at least 200 words in length. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
Unit VI Case Study
Read the case study on page 456 of the textbook entitled “Southwestern University Traffic Problems.” As you read the case study, take notes on how the concepts with Network Modeling can lead you to develop effective solutions to the two associated Discussion Questions.
Read the case study on page 494 of the textbook entitled “Southwestern University Stadium Construction.” As you read the Case Study, take notes on how the concepts of Project Management can lead you to develop effective solutions to the three associated Discussion Questions.
Read the case study on page 494 of the textbook entitled “Family Planning Research Center of Nigeria.” As you read the Case Study, take notes on how the concepts of Project Management can lead you to develop effective solutions to the three Associated Discussion questions located on page 496.
You are to answer TWO of the three case studies in a minimum three- to four-page paper. Use any tables, graphs, or charts that you deem necessary to support your response. Use appropriate APA style to cite any outside sources.
Unit VII

Your response should be at least 200 words in length. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
Compare and contrast the differences between single-channel queuing systems and multichannel queuing systems. Describe your answer in full.
Your response should be at least 200 words in length. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
Unit VIII Scholarly Activity

Your paper needs to include the following items:
1. Abstract
2. Scale of Data Measurement
Was it quantitative or qualitative? How did the researcher go about collecting the data?
3. Variations within the data
Include the implications this may have for business methods.
4. Concluding results
Critique the findings. What type of errors occurred in the research that may affect the outcome of the data? Is there any missing information that should be included? Discuss how you would approach the research and what type of questions you may ask.
Your research report should be a minimum of eight pages with appropriate APA style and citation.
