Unformatted text preview: think the speciﬁcations for the component dimensions are adequate? Explain. 5. Two components A and B are placed inside a box C as shown in the ﬁgure below. The speciﬁcations of some dimensions are also shown in the ﬁgure. (a) Find the speciﬁcations for the gap using worstcase method and root sum of squares method. (b) Suppose the dimensions of A and B are negatively correlated and we want to utilize this information to revise the tolerance for the gap. Do you think we should increase or decrease the tolerance? Explain. (Hint: V ar ( X 1 + X 2 ) = σ 2 1 + σ 2 2 + 2 ρσ 1 σ 2 , where ρ is the correlation between X 1 and X 2 .) 1...
