What is tool that can be used to detect the structure variation?

It is, unfortunately, common in business for managers to demand an explanation for variation that is, based on statistics, typical and expected variation, i.e., common cause variation. Alternatively, there may be obvious special causes in the data that may be shrugged off as “typical business fluctuations”. Which of the following statements about interpretation of variation are true?

The fact that processes tend to be dynamic, rather than static, is a key principle of statistical thinking. Which of the following is a natural consequence of this fact?

Figure 2.16 shows a chart of the Dow Jones Industrial Average from 1990 through 2011. This plot reveals some obvious change points, such as the 2008 financial collapse, and some unexplainable short-term variation. Assuming that these are the only sources of variation in this plot, what source of variation is NOT visible in the plot?

A manufacturing process has been experiencing problems.  The operators charting the process data have identified the cause to be due to an unanticipated change in incoming raw materials.  This problem should be considered:

Which type of variation was critical to resolving the realized revenue case study?

Suppose the Process Improvement Framework were used to attack a problem where the process in question was inherently unstable. Which of the following would be a likely result of this effort?

We learned in Chapter 2 that most processes are dynamic in nature, and therefore the time dimension is often a critical consideration in process improvement. For which of the case studies in Chapter 4 was plotting data over time NOT critical to success?

We learned in Chapter 3 that the measurement process is always important and worthy of our attention. However, in Chapter 4 we found that measurement can be absolutely critical to solving the problem. For which of the case studies in Chapter 4 was measurement NOT discussed as a critical issue?

Suppose a DMAIC Framework were used to attack a problem where the process in question was inherently stable. Which of the following would be a likely result of this effort?

The Problem Solving Framework begins with a “Document the Problem” phase. The Process Improvement Framework does not begin this way, but rather begins with an “Understand the Process phase.” Which of the following are valid reasons for this difference?

## Argosy PSY 301 Module 4 Assignment 1 Discussion Question: Victim of Peer Violence

Argosy PSY 301 Module 4 Assignment 1 Discussion Question: Victim of Peer Violence

Assignment 1: Discussion Question: Victim of Peer Violence

At the age of nine, Anita moved from a small town to a big city because her father was transferred to a new job. Anita entered fifth grade in the middle of the term and was immediately ostracized by her female classmates. Anita begged her parents to send her back to her old school. Her parents assumed she was lonely and reassured her that things would get better soon.

Two girls began tripping Anita in the halls and taking items from her, starting with small items such as school supplies and graduating to larger items such as jewelry and clothes. They would “accidentally” elbow her in the stomach as they walked by, threw things at Anita when teachers were not looking, and whispered derogatory names to her. Anita started leaving for school in the morning, then circling back home when her parents left for work.

One day, Anita’s mother caught her in the attempt, but Anita refused to explain her actions. Reluctantly, she returned to school only to find the same two girls waiting for her in the restroom. They kicked her and pulled her hair. Anita returned to class teary-eyed and disheveled, but refused to talk to the teacher.  After class, her teacher encouraged her to talk to the school counselor, where Anita finally broke down and confessed what had been occurring.

We have learned that taking a social ecological approach (i.e., altering the environment) can be an important component to an intervention plan. As the school counselor, you must work with the school and Anita’s family to intervene on her behalf. Submit your response by Saturday, September 5, 2015.

o Based on this scenario, what environmental alterations might you suggest based on what you have learned?
o How will you foster resiliency as part of a community-intervention plan?
o Include issues of gender, diversity, and ethics in your plan.
o As the counselor meeting with Anita, how will you manage state-mandated reporting laws and maintaining Anita’s confidentiality within the community?
o How will you incorporate Anita’s parents and school into your plan?

Children and Violence

Argosy University

Abstract

Technology surrounds us everywhere. Most individuals, regardless of age, race, gender, or ethnicity, own some type of electronic equipment. This can be in many forms such as a cellular phone, computer, television, or videogame system. For the past twenty years there has been a long debate on how exposure to violence in video games, television, and movies impacts society, particularly more impressionable young children. Each incidence of violence committed by a young child or adolescent has respired the debate on whether or not there was exposure to violence through the media and whether it had a role in the perpetrator’s actions. In this case, Greg, age 10, is no different. This paper will examine the effects of media violence on children at Greg’s developmental level, risk and protective measures, outcomes, interventions, and the comparison of video game violence to other forms of violence.
