Bottling Company Case Study

Imagine you are a manager at a major bottling company. Customers have begun to complain that the bottles of the brand of soda produced in your company contain less than the advertised sixteen (16) ounces of product. Your boss wants to solve the problem at hand and has asked you to investigate. You have your employees pull thirty (30) bottles off the line at random from all the shifts at the bottling plant. You ask your employees to measure the amount of soda there is in each bottle. Use the data set provided to complete this assignment.

Write a two to three (2-3) page report in which you:

  1. Thoroughly calculated the mean, median, and standard deviation for ounces in the bottles.
  2. Thoroughly constructed a 95% Confidence Interval for the ounces in the bottles.
  3. Thoroughly conducted a hypothesis test to verify if the claim that a bottle contains less than sixteen (16) ounces is supported. Thoroughly stated the logic of your test, the calculations, and the conclusion of your test.
  4. Provide the following discussion based on the conclusion of your test:

a. If you conclude that there are less than sixteen (16) ounces in a bottle of soda, Thoroughly speculated on three (3) possible causes. Thoroughly suggested the strategies to avoid the deficit in the future

OR

b. If you conclude that the claim of less soda per bottle is not supported or justified, Thoroughly provided a detailed explanation to your boss about the situation. Thoroughly included your speculation on the reason(s) behind the claim, and thoroughly recommended one (1) strategy geared toward mitigating this issue in the future.

5. Consistently use reasons and evidence that logically support ideas.

6. Must Be free of errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

7. Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides. No citations and references are required, but if you use them, they must follow APA format.
