### Information Technology (Semester 8)

Total marks: 80
Total time: 3 Hours
INSTRUCTIONS
(1) Question 1 is compulsory.
(2) Attempt any three from the remaining questions.
(3) Draw neat diagrams wherever necessary.

1.a. Elaborate the steps involved in simulation study. Why is it necessary to have program and process documentation?
(10 marks) 5986

1.b The sequence of numbers 0.63, 0.49, 0.24, 0.89 and 0.71 has been generated. Use the Komogorov-Smirnov test with $\alpha$= 0.05 to determine if the hypothesis that the numbers are uniformly distributed on the interval[0,1] can be rejected. Use D$_{0.05}$= 0.565

2.a A firm sells bulk rolls of newsprint. The daily demand is given by the following probability distribution:

Daily Demand (Rolls) 3 4 5 6
Probability 0.20 0.35 0.30 0.15

Lead time is a random variable given by the following distribution:

Lead Time (Days) 1 2 3
Probability 0.36 0.42 0.22

Determine the lead-time demand for 5 cycles of simulation. Random digits for lead time and demand are as follows:

R.D for Lead Time 46 75 86 27 63
Probability 4 5 4 5 6 3 4 4 6 4
