Quality control has been a problem with a new product

Quality control has been a problem with a new product assembly line, and a multiple regression analysis is being used to help identify the source of the trouble. The daily “percent defective” has been identified as the Y variable, to be predicted from the following variables that were considered by some workers to be likely causes of trouble: the “percent overscheduled” (a measure of the extent to which the system is being worked over and above its capacity), the “buffer inventory level” (the extent to which stock builds up between workstations), and the “input variability” (the standard deviation of the weights for a key input component). Based on the multiple regression output in Table 12.5.13, where should management action be targeted? Explain your answer in the form of a memo to your supervisor.
