    We have many trays with numerous white jumping beans (WhiteJB).  In one of the trays a red jumping bean (RedJB) was placed. One property of the RedJB is that it converts a WhiteJB into a RedJB upon contact when it lands. Another property of the RedJB is that holds the power of conversion for a period of 15-days. The newly converted RedJB can jump a percentage higher than its converter but the percentage is unknown. The new RedJB inherits all the properties of RedJBs. To reduce the conversion of WhiteJB, the RedJB can be taken from the trays during one of the jumps (with the assistance of WhiteJBs), and place into a Match box, so its time of conversion passes,  thus reducing the number RedJB.

    The RedJB must remain in Match boxes until their conversion period ends, then, they can leave the box as WhiteJB and free the Match box.

    The process can manufacture 1000 Match boxes every 8-days. When the conversion started, 291 RedJB were placed into Match boxes. Two days later 446 RedJB were in Match boxes. Two days after that, 864 RedJB were in Match boxes. The numbers every two days proceeded with, 2021, 4524, and 7711.

    A model predicted that the next number of RedJB would be 12524. However, the actual number was much higher, it was 14347.  Having RedJB in the trays is undesirable and is what we want to avoid or remedy.
    Question:
    #1-Should we distance the trays from the tray were the conversion process was initiated by the first RedJB?
    #2-With 14347 today, what is the next number of RedJB two days from now.
    #3-What is the problem?

    Every day the problem is undefined, it cannot be solved, and the trays are getting more red.

    Tic toc tic toc!

    @Mario-Perez-Wilson Good morning Mario. Been a very long time my friend. Hope you are doing well.

    I have no clue but I will see what I can conjure up. I think after the go round with the guy with the Montgomery thing you may have hit this site when people were less inclined to participate in this but we will see.

    NOTE; For those people reading this Mario goes way back in the Six Sigma history, is an accomplished author and actually solves problems in the real world for a living. This will not be the circus the other guy created.
