The variance in a production process is an important measure of the quality of the process. A large variance often signals an opportunity for improvement in the process by finding ways to reduce the process variance. Conduct a statistical test to determine whether there is a significant difference between the variances in the bag weights for the two machines. Use a .05 level of significance. What is your conclusion? Which machine, if either, provides the greater opportunity for quality improvements?
Machine 1: 2.95 3.45 3.50 3.75 3.48 3.26 3.33 3.20 3.16 3.20 3.22 3.38 3.90 3.36 3.25 3.28 3.20 3.22 2.98 3.45 3.70 3.34 3.18 3.35 3.12
Machine 2: 3.22 3.30 3.34 3.28 3.29 3.25 3.30 3.27 3.38 3.34 3.35 3.19 3.35 3.05 3.36 3.28 3.30 3.28 3.30 3.20 3.16 3.33
