Unformatted text preview: STAT 4220 HW7 (20 points) Due on Thu, April 1 1. To compare the eﬀects of ﬁve diﬀerent assembly methods (denoted by the Latin letters A, B , C , D, and E ) on the throughput, an experiment based on a Graeco-Latin square was conducted which involved three blocking variables: day, operator, and machine type. The data are given in Table 1, where the machine type is denoted by the ﬁve Greek letters. The response, throughput, is the number of completed pieces per day and is given in the parentheses in the table.

Give the ANOVA Table. Do multiple comparisons to ﬁnd which of the methods are signiﬁcantly better than the others? (b) (3 points) Which factors in the ANOVA table are not signiﬁcant? Can you ﬁt a better model without the insigniﬁcant factors? Explain clearly. 2. Natrella (1963, pp. 13–14) described an experiment on a resistor mounted on a ceramic plate in which the impact of four geometrical shapes of the resistors on the current noise of the resistor is studied. Only three resistors can be mounted on one plate. The design and data for the resistor experiment are given in Table 2.
