Assignment#1 JET Copies Case Problem
Read the “JET Copies” Case Problem
on pages 678-679 of the text. Using simulation estimate the loss of revenue due
to copier breakdown for one year, as follows:
In Excel, use a suitable method for generating the number of days needed to
repair the copier, when it is out of service, according to the discrete
In Excel, use a suitable method for simulating the interval between successive
breakdowns, according to the continuous distribution shown.
In Excel, use a suitable method for simulating the lost revenue for each day
the copier is out of service.
Put all of this together to simulate the lost revenue due to copier breakdowns
over 1 year to answer the question asked in the case study.
In a word processing program, write a brief description/explanation of how you
implemented each component of the model. Write 1-2 paragraphs for each
component of the model (days-to-repair; interval between breakdowns; lost
revenue; putting it together).
Answer the question posed in the case study. How confident are you that this
answer is a good one? What are the limits of the study? Write at least one
