Q.1. A toy company manufactures two types of dolls, a basic version doll-A and a deluxe version doll-B. Each doll of type B takes twice as long to produce as one of type A, and the company would have time to make maximum of 1000 per day. The supply of plastic is sufficient to produce 1000 dolls per day(both A & B combined). The deluxe version requires a facny dress of ehich there are only 500 per day available. If the company makes a profit of Rs 3.00 and Rs 5.. per doll, respectively on doll A and B, then how many of each doll should be produced per day in order to maximise the total profit. Formulate this problem.

Formulation maximize z =3x1 +5x2

Constraints  x1+2x2<=2000


[x1=1000,x2=500,max z= 5500]

Q.2. What are the advantages of Linear programming techniques?
A.2  Advantages of Linear Programming

1.The linear programming technique helps to make the best possible use of available productive resources (such as time, labour, machines etc.)

2. In a production process, bottle necks may occur. For example, in a factory some machines may be in great demand while others may lie idle for some time. A significant advantage of linear programming is highlighting of such bottle necks.

Q.4.What is integer programming?
A.4 An integer programming problem is a mathematical optimization or feasibility program in which some or all of the variables are restricted to be integers. In many settings the term refers to integer linear programming, which is also known as mixed integer programming when some but not all the variables are restricted to be integers.
Integer programming is NP-hard. A special case, 0-1 integer linear programming, in which unknowns are binary, is one of the Karp's 21 NP-complete problems. However, integer programs with a constant number of variables may be solved in linear time as an LP-type problem.[1][2] In variable dimension, iterative methods using the Graver basis of the matrix defining the system, enable the solution of broad classes of linear and nonlinear integer programming problems in polynomial time [3], and provide a parametrization of all integer programming problems.

Q.5 Explain the different steps involved in simulation methodologies?
1. Define an achievable goal
2. Have a complete mix of skills in the team
3. Use modern tools and techniques of S/W development
4. Select the proper simulation language
5. Involve the end-user
6. Provide on-going documentation
7. Verify and validate the model

Q.6. Write down the basic difference between PERT &CPM.
PERT (Program Evaluation and Review Technique)
CPM (Critical Path Method)
1)PERT is a probabilistic tool used with three
1)CPM is a deterministic tool, with only single
Estimating the duration for completion of estimate of duration activities.
2)This tool is basically a tool for planning
2)CPM also allows and explicit estimate of and control of time. costs in addition to time, therefore CPM can  control both time and cost.
3)PERT is more suitable for R&D related
3)CPM is best suited for routine and those projects where the project is performed for projects where time and cost estimates can the first time and the estimate of duration be accurately calculated are uncertain.
4)The probability factor i major in PERT
4)The deterministic factor is more so values or so outcomes may not be exact. outcomes are generally accurate and realistic.

Q.1 Explain the various stages involved in new product development. A.1New product development process: stage 1 - Idea generation: New product idea can be generated either from the internal sources orexternal sources. The internal sources include employees of the organization and data collected from themarket. The external source includes customers, competitors and supply chain members. For example,Ingersoll Rand welcomes new ideas from the General public. Stage 2-Idea screening: Organization may have various ideas but it should find out which of these ideascanbe translated into concepts. In an interview to Times of India, Mr.Ratan Tata, chairman TATA groupdiscussed how his idea saw many changes from the basic version. He told that he wanted to develop carwith scooter engine, plastic doors etc… But when he unveiled the car, there were many changes in theproduct. This shows that initial idea will be changed on the basis of market requirements. Stage 3 - Concept development: the main feature o…

Unable To Download Magnet Links In Google Chrome [SOLVED]

It so happened to my some days back while surfing a torrent site which contains magnet links.. i clicked on the magnet link and the popup came up asking the permission to launch utorrent client. Generally i allow it. But this time, by mistake, i pressed ESCAPE button and the popup went away. After that i tried to download the magnet links, but was unable to download magnet links in Google Chrome. I tried other browser and i was able to download there. What should i do?

Solution : 

This problem occurred because you denied the access and also you would have selection to remember your choice... No need to worry about that... Just follow these steps and you should be able to start downloading magnet links in Google Chrome as before..

Step 1 : Close Google Chrome
Step 2 : Go to Start Menu and open Run (Shortcut CTRL + R)
Step 3 : type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data  and press ENTER
Step 4 : Open the file named Local State with notepad.
Step 5 : Search for the words protocol_handler (Short…


Master of Business Administration - MBA Semester 2 MB0049 – Project Management (4 credits) (Book ID: B1138) ASSIGNMENT- Set 1 Marks 60 Q1. Define project management. Discuss the need for project management. A.1Project ManagementIt is an art of controlling the cost, time, manpower, and hardware and software resources involved in a project.
Project management is necessary because it helps an organisation execute a project successfully by: a)Preventing Project Failure:A project requires huge investments which should not go waste. A loss in any project would have direct or indirect impact on the society. Project management helps an organisation prevent failures in projects. b)Controlling Project Scope:Scope of the project activity may undergo a change. Project management helps an organisation define and control project scope. c)Improving understanding:Lack of understanding of the project among the participants leads to failure. Project management helps participants understand the project and its p…
