Problem 1 [40 points]. The horsepower developed by an automobile engine on a dynamometer is thought to be a function of the engine speed in revolutions per minute (rpm), the road octane number of the fuel, and the engine compression. An experiment is run in the laboratory and the following data are collected.

  1. [10pts] Fit a second order model including AB and A2 and evaluate the lack of fit.
  2. [10pts] Sketch a contour plot and identify the recommended operating conditions to minimize filtration time. Estimate the predicted filtration time under those conditions.
  3. [10pts] What operating conditions would you recommend if the objective is to operate the process at a mean filtration time very close to 46.

Problem 4 [10 points – EMIS 7377 students only] A manufacturer of cutting tools has developed two empirical equations for tool life in hours (y1) and for tool cost in dollars (y2). Both models are linear functions of steel hardness (x1) and manufacturing time (x2). The two equations are:

and both equations are valid over the range . Unit tool cost must be below $27.50 and expected tool life must exceed 12 hours for the product to be competitive.

  1. [2.5pts] Sketch contour plots for the two models.
  2. [2.5pts] Sketch the overlay plot
  3. [2.5pts] Is there a feasible set of operating conditions for this process?
  4. [2.5pts] Where would you recommend that the process be run?
