i) Draw the project network and determine expected project length.
ii) Calculate the Std. Dev. And variance of the project.
iii) What is the probability that project will be completed no more than
4 weeks earlier than expected time.
iv) If the project due date is 19 weeks, what is the probability of not meeting the due date. [16] Given data : Z = 1.33, P = 0.9082
Z = 0.67, P = 0.7486 Z = 1.28, P = 0.9
Q3) There are seven jobs, each of which has to go through the machines A 8 B in the order AB. Processing time in hours are given as,

Determine the sequence of these jobs that will minimize the total elapsed time T. Also find T and idle time for machines A and B. [18] 
OR
There are five jobs, each of which is to be processed through three machines A, B and C in the order ABC. Processing times in hours are,

Determine the optimum sequence for the five jobs and the minimum elapsed time. Also find the idle time for the three machines and waiting time for the jobs. [18]
SECTION – II

Q6) A company makes three products X, Y and Z which go through three departments – Drill, Lathe and Assembly. The hours of department time required by each of the products, the hours available in each of the departments and the profit contribution of each of the products are given in the following table.

The marketing department of the company indicates that the sales potential for the products X and Y is unlimited, but for Z it is not more than 30 units. Determine optimum production schedule. [18]

There are two lathe and three drilling machines. The working week is of 40 hours; there is no overtime and lost time. Variable costs for both the castings are Rs. 120 per unit while the total fixed costs amount to Rs. 1000 per week. The selling price of casting X is Rs. 300 per unit and that of Y is Rs. 360 per unit. There are no limitations on the number of X and Y castings that can be sold. The company wishes to maximize profits. Formulate the linear programming model for the same. [18]
