Test Two

1.) Product A has an MTBF of 700 hours and an MTTR of 120 hours. Product B has
an MTBF of 1000 hours and an MTTR of 180 hours. Based on system
availability which product should we choose?

MTBF/(MTBF+MTTR) = A

2.) What is the major difference between tradition product design and concurrent
product design?
Concurrent decentralized, improved quality, done in parallel

6.) Compute the point of indifference for the following processes:
Process 1: Fixed costs 335,000 Variable Costs 66 per item
Process 2: Fixed Costs 500,250 Variable Costs 49 per item
Fixed(A) + Var(A)x = Fixed(B) + Var(B)x
