Suppose that R & B Beverage Company has a soft drink product that shows a constant annual demand rate of 3600 cases. A case of the soft drink costs R & B $3. Ordering costs are $20 per order and holding costs are 25% of the value of the inventory. R & B has 250 working days a year and the lead time is 5 days. Identift the following aspects of the inventory policy
A. Economic order quantity
B. Reorder point
C. Cycle time
D. Total annual cost
The reorder point is defined as the lead time demand for an item. In cases of long lead times, the lead time demand and thus the reorder point may exceed the economic order quantity. In such cases, the inventory position will not equal the inventory on hand when an order is placed and the reorder point may be expressed in terms of either the inventory position or the inventory on hand. Consider the economic order quantity model with D=5000 Co = $32 Ch=$2 and 250 working days per year. Identify the reoder point in terms of the inventory position and in terms of the inventory on hard for each of the following lead times.
A 5 days
B 15 days
C 25 days
D 45 days
Westside Auto purchases a company used in the manufacture of automobile generators directly from the supplier. Westside’s generators production operation which is operated a constant rate will require 1000 components per month throughout the year ( 12,000 units annually) Assume that the ordering costs are $25 per order the unit cost is $2.50 per Compton and annual holding costs are 20% of the value of the inventory. Westsides has 260 working days per year and a lead time of 5 days.
