Create a GPSS model with block diagram for the Barbershop using the concept of facility and run the simulation for 9 hours.


Why accuracy of analog computer is low? Explain analog computer with suitable example. Differentiate between analog and digital computer.


Define and develop a Poker test for four-digit random numbers. A sequence of 1,000 random numbers,each of four digits has been generated. The analysis of the numbers reveals that in 525 numbers all four digits are different, 419 contain exactly one pair of like digits, 47 contain two pairs, 9 have three digits of a kind and 7 contain all like digits. Use Poker test to determine whether these numbers are independent.(Critical value of chi-square for a = 0.05 and N = 4 is 9.49).

Group B

Answer any Eight Questions


Why Confidence interval is needed in the analysis of simulation output. How can we establish a confidence interval?
