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 worst-case 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...
