Chapter 12
Raw materials
Work in process
Safety stock
Inventory holding
Types of Demand (stochastic, dynamic, static, etc)
Economic Order Quantity, Reorder Point, Order quantity (how to calculate)
Sample Problem:
Kelly opens an aquarium store in a lively shopping mall and finds business to be
booming, but she often stocks out of key items customers want. She decides to
experiment with inventory control methods such as using a fixed order quantity (FQS)
and/or fixed order period (FPS) systems. The Fluval 303 pump, a high margin and
profitable pump, is one of her best sellers, but it stocks out frequently. She collects the
following data about the pumps sales.
Demand = 10 units per week
Order cost = $30/order
Item cost = $80/pump
Inventory-holding cost = 15% per year

Store operates 45 weeks/year

Lead time = 3 weeks
Standard deviation of weekly demand = 4 units
Desired service level = 90 percent

The economic order quantity (EOQ) rounded to the next highest number is:
ANS: D (EOQ=47.43)
The reorder point with safety stock rounded to the next highest whole number is:
ANS: C (R = 30+8.86 = 39)
If the current order quantity used by Kelly is 20 pumps per order, how much money can she save by adopting an
economic order quantity (EOQ) policy?


= $569.21, TC


= $735, Savings = $165.79)

If Kelly decides to use a fixed-period system (FPS), the fixed-order interval (T) based on store economics is:
ANS: A (T= EOQ/D*45 weeks/year = 4.8 weeks )

units. Each container has a combined waiting and processing time of 0.34 days. If the
container size is 50 and efficiency (safety) factor is 9 percent, how many Kanban card
sets should be authorized?
ANS: B (K = 5.93 or 6)
