The purpose of this paper is to do a case study of a bottling company. The scenario is: Imagine you are a manager at a major bottling company. Customers have begun to complain that the bottles of the brand of soda produced in your company contain less than the advertised sixteen (16) ounces of product. Your boss wants to solve the problem at hand and has asked you to investigate. You have your employees pull thirty (30) bottles of the line at random from all the shifts at the bottling plant. You ask your employees to measure the amount of soda there is in each bottle. Use the data set below.
Number Ounces Bottle
Number Ounces Bottle
Number Ounces
1 14.5 11 15 21 14.1
2 14.6 12 15.1 22 14.2
3 14.7 13 15 23 14
4 14.8 14 14.4 24 14.9
5 14.9 15 15.8 25 14.7
6 15.3 16 14 26 14.5
7 14.9 17 16 27 14.6
8 15.5 18 16.1 28 14.8
9 14.8 19 15.8 29 14.8
10 15.2 20 14.5 30 14.6

Calculate the mean, median, and standard deviation for ounces in the bottles. The mean is found by getting a total of all the ounces in the bottles. The ounces total, 446.10 and divided by the number of bottles of 30 is 14.87. The median is the midpoint of the data array which is when the data is sorted by size, the median is 14.8. The standard deviation is found by taking each value in the chart and subtracting the mean and squaring the value; get a total sum of the value of the squares and divide by the number of values minus one. The standard deviation is .55.
Construct a 95% confidence interval for the ounces in the bottle. The 95% confidence interval can be found by using the t distribution. The sample mean plus and minus (2.045) times the standard deviation/ square root of 30. The confidence interval is 95% in Table F and the df = 29 which is 2.045.
14.87 – 2.045 times .55/square root of 30 = 14.66
14.87 + 2.045 time .55/square root of 30 + 15.07
The 95%…...

...CASE STUDY: You are making home visits to an 82-year-old woman who is recovering from a fractured femur. During your last three visits she has consistently complained of being cold, even though it is summer and her house is very warm. In addition, she has had frequent complaints of constipation, has not felt like eating, and been tired. She has a bottle of hand lotion next to her chair for her dry skin.

SYMPTOMS: Why is patient presenting with these s/s CONSTIPATION: Immobility r/t fractured femur Pain meds: Analgesics BEING COLD: Anemia Low RBC production r/t femur fracture DRY SKIN: Dehydration FATIGUE: Pt could be pain LABS: What labs should be ordered for patient CBC; TSH; Serum Electrolyte Levels; Kanahi Beathea Johnnie Tolbert Critical Thinking Chapter 21 From the findings the pt was presenting with s/s of hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism develops when the thyroid gland fails to produce or secrete as much Thyroxine(T4) as the body needs. Because thyroxine regulates such essential functions as heart rate, digestion, physical growth, and mental development, an insufficient supply of this hormone can slow life sustaining process, damage organs and tissue in every part of the body, and lead to life-threatening complications. Hypothyroidism is very common in patients over 60 years of age, and is steadily increasing with age. The symptoms of hypothyroidism are very non-specific in all patients, even more so in...

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

...Same wine in Different Bottles Cross-badging,or selling the same car with cosmetic changes under different brand names, has not worked so far in India. This case study looks at In January 2012, Japanese auto major Nissan's Indian subsidiary Nissan Motor India sold 1,855 units of its compact car Micra. The same month French carmaker Renault launched its compact car Pulse in India. In February this year, Micra sales were down to 608 units, while Pulse sold 420 units. Turn to sedans. In August 2012, Nissan's sedan Sunny sold 2,757 units. In September that year Renault launched its sedan, Scala. By February this year Sunny sales had fallen to 1,191 units, while Scala sold 620 units. And guess what? Nissan and Renault are not even competitors. They have been strategic partners since 1999. Micra, Pulse, Sunny and Scala are all products of the Nissan-Renault alliance. Or take German car manufacturer Volkswagen's sedan Vento. It sold 3,474 units in India in October 2011. A month later, carmaker Skoda launched its sedan Rapid. Vento's sales have since fallen to 1,909 by February this year. Once again, Skoda is part of the Volkswagen group - Vento and Rapid are from the same stable. In fact, Micra and Pulse are essentially the same cars, with some cosmetic differences, made in the same factories, but sold under different names. So too are Sunny and Scala, or Vento and Rapid. Welcome to the strategy of crossbadging , or selling the same car under different......

...Bottle Company Case Study Statistics MAT/300 As Manager of the Harley Bottle Company, I have been receiving complaints from customers on the quantity of product received when purchasing our sixteen ounces soda bottles. These complaints have caused my boss to worry and would like me to investigate the issue at hand. I will begin my investigation by instructing the employees to pull at random 30 bottles from all the shifts at the bottling plant. By pulling random containers from all shifts, I can eliminate the possibility of if being a human error. To start my investigation I begin by weighing the sample size of 30 bottles. The weight ranges between 14 oz. and 16.1oz., which lets be know there is a problem with our bottling consistence. For more detailed information to complete my investigation I must calculate the Mean, Median, and Standard Deviation of the sample size. * The Mean is the sum of the sample size in ounces divided by sample size. Based on the sample size of 30 bottles, there is a total of 446.1 ounces divided by the sample size of 30, gives is the mean of 14.87. = 14.87 * The Median is the data set middle number when the set is sorted in numerical order. Median of the 30 bottles is 14.8. * Standard deviation is the measure of how spread out the numbers is. To find the (Standard Deviation), you must find the square root of the variance. The is 0.5503. The Harley Bottling Company is very optimistic of is bottling process. I will now......

We then decided to separated the major problems with the minor problems, in the order that would have effected the business the most and its reputation within the community. As we know with any business especially a business that is a focal point for the local community reputation is very important when it comes down to operating the small business. Criterion Hotel is the only "Pub" for miles maintaining the business and its employees to the highest standards is the key to success. Analyzing the case study we can clearly see that last month there was a serious problem, The business lost potential customers, which intern caused tension build up between the owners and the employees. In my opinion one of the first major problems that occurred during the crisis was the fact that  In the bar, a fight broke out between the asparagus pickers for Green Giant from Hibbing, MN, and the roustabouts who were in town setting up for the Midwest Rodeo down the highway. Homophobic statements were made, along with anti-Gay graffiti on cars.  (This incident made the local news, and the hotel has received calls of complaint from several Gay rights' groups in the Twin Cities.)

Bottle Company Case Study

...I am a manger over a bottling company called Smith Bottling. I have been the manager with this company for the past 10 years and this is the first complaint of this magnitude and I want to ensure that the issue is proved and resolved. We have been getting complaints from customers that the 16 ounce bottles are less that advertised. We pride ourselves here on customer service and want to ensure all customers are receiving what they pay for and happy with their purchase. First step was to obtain samples to test. I asked a few employees to obtain 30 bottles (wanted a good range of sample). The initial weights of the samples taken for review were 14oz. and 16 oz. After taking these samples, I have to bring myself to the realization that there was in fact a problem with the bottling amount. I thought by calculating the Mean, Median and the Standard Deviation, I could come up with better numbers and provide a better detail to my investigation. The mean is the total of the samples divided by the actual number of samples that were taken. Since I took 30 bottles, and the total numbers of ounces were 446.1 this provides a mean of 14.87. The median is the middles number once all samples are sorted in numerical order. I figured the median to be 14.8. The standard deviation is the distance each number is from the next number. I had to find the square root of the variance giving me a number of 0.5503. Smith Bottling is hopeful of our process and wants to make sure......

A Case Study

...A G Barr plc — a case study Background information A G Barr plc manufactures, distributes and markets drinks, primarily carbonated soft drinks. Based in Glasgow, it has been manufacturing soft drinks in Scotland since 1875. Its most famous product, Irn-Bru, was first produced in 1901. Barr’s became a public limited company in 1965. The business has always been associated with the Barr family and members of it own the majority of shares in the company. However, Robin Barr, the chairman, is the only member of the Barr family still directly employed in the business. Barr’s has a deliberate policy of focusing on the drinks market. It does not produce any other type of product and has no interests in any other fields of business activity. It describes itself as an ‘independent, consumer led and profitable public company, engaged in the manufacture, distribution and marketing of branded soft drinks’. In the last 40 years, the number of soft drinks manufacturers in Scotland has fallen from around 200 to about six. Barr’s is by far the biggest of those which survive. Over the years, Barr’s has acquired a number of other companies. These include other soft drinks firms, particularly ones in England, such as Tizer Limited in 1972 and Mandora St Clements of Mansfield in 1988. In 2001, Findlays Limited of Edinburgh, which produces Findlays Spring Mineral Water, became a wholly owned subsidiary of A G Barr plc. Appendix 1 gives details of the......

He’s proud of the way his company has grown, and done so on the basis of an organizational culture committed to honesty, integrity and the intrinsic value of each individual. But now those values are being put to the test. It began when Al Smetana learned that an employee had tapped into the company’s computer system and figured out how to read people’s e-mail and to learn what websites they visited. Determining who the culprit was wasn’t difficult. When confronted about it, the employee admitted what he had done. Al Smetana immediately terminated his employment. But as he left, the employee said angrily, “Just ask Lindley about his computer usage,” referring to Craig Lindley, associate vice president for human resources and an old friend of Al Smetana’s. Although Al Smetana did not trust the discharged employee, he was disturbed by his comment and reluctant to let it go. So he called Craig Lindley into his office and asked him about it. After a few minutes of gentle questioning, Craig started weeping. When he recovered himself, he explained that for the past year or so he had been hooked on pornography on the web and at the office sometimes spent an hour or......

Please go out front and wait, so the paramedics can find the address quickly.” Saturday, 8:10AM Paramedics Kavita Dickson and Larry Gonzales brought the ambulance to a stop at the end of a long driveway next to an impressive two-story mansion. The maid was on the front steps and quickly directed them to the back patio where the hot tub could be seen. Empty bottles of wine were on the ledge surrounding the hot tub. Kavita quickly climbed up the steps and saw the bodies of the Underhills on the bottom of the hot tub. As she got into the water, she exclaimed, “This water seems really hot. Let’s see if we can get them out.” Larry climbed in after her and together they “The Hot Tub Mystery” by Herbert House Page 1 dragged the bodies out of the hot tub and onto the patio. It was obvious that both had been dead for some time. Kavita called the dispatcher. “Listen, Linda, this hot tub case is a doa, but something is not right. How about sending the medical examiner and a detective out to look the situation over. Tell them to bring a thermometer!” Questions 1. What observations did the paramedics make? 2.

...personnel and equipment over a longer period of time than did any other spill in U.S. history. Logistical problems in providing fuel, meals, berthing, response equipment, waste management and other resources were one of the largest challenges to response management. At the height of the response, more than 11,000 personnel, 1,400 vessels and 85 aircraft were involved in the cleanup. The world saw in the television images of dead and dying wildlife, and thousands of workers mobilized to clean beaches. These images reflected what many people felt was a severe environmental insult to a relatively pristine, ecologically important area that was home to many species of wildlife endangered elsewhere. Even up until today, scientists continue to study the affected shorelines to understand how an ecosystem like Prince William Sound responds to, and recovers from, an incident like the tragic Exxon Valdez oil spill. II. SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS (EPISTLE – Legal, Industrial, Economic) LEGAL ACTIONS In the part of Johnson & Johnson’s “Tylenol” killings, three lawsuits sought damages totaling $35 million were filed against the company by families of the victims while a fourth, a class action suit, requested refunds for all 1982 Tylenol purchasers -- a $600 million buy back.  Legal experts predicted that Johnson & Johnson could successfully defend itself in court by claiming it could not be held responsible for failing to anticipate the acts of a mad killer. However in the part of......
