To determine the sample size for a confidence interval for the difference of two means to have a specified margin-of-error we need to apply the following formula:

The biggest enemy for quality and cost is variability. For example, in manufacturing the greater the variability, the greater the chance of producing non-conforming product.

To determine the sample size for a confidence interval to have a specified margin-of-error we need to apply the following formula: N = Z_Value(alpha / 2) * Sigma / (margin-of-error)^2. Where alpha is the specified level of significance.

It can be argued that philosophically the standard deviation is more important than the mean. The standard deviation is a measure of variability and some have called variability Qualityâ€™s biggest enemy.

The theory behind hypothesis testing for the ratio of two standard deviations is based on the theory for hypothesis testing of two variances where the variance is equal to the standard deviation ^2.

There are many situations where the analyst needs to decide on the difference between two means. Several researchers have reported that the difference in two means can be more important than information on the means separately.
