DATA INPUT  
Beginning inventory =  168,758  units  
Ending inventory =  0  units  
# Orders per year =  4  orders  
Carrying cost / unit =  $0.611  per year  
Fixed order cost =  $8,245  per order  
Average Inventory cost per unit =  $92.58  per unit  


(a) What is the total carrying cost? (Round to the nearest whole dollar. (e.g., 1,234))  $  
(b) What is the restocking cost? (Round to the nearest whole dollar. (e.g., 1,234))  $  
(c) What is the total cost of current inventory policy? (Round to the nearest whole dollar. (e.g., 1,234))  $  
(d) Calculate the economic order quantity. (Round your answer to the nearest whole number of units. (e.g., 1,234))  0  
(e) Calculate the number of orders per year that would be required if the EOQ Inventory Policy were implemented. (Round your answer to 2 decimal places. (e.g., 32.16))  
(f) What would the EOQ Inventory Balance (in dollars) be in 2019 if the firm switched to the EOQ Inventory Policy? (Do not include the dollar sign ($). Round to the nearest whole dollar. (e.g., 1,234)  $ 
Total requirement in a year
= 168,758 * 4
= 675,032 units
a) Total carrying cost
= 168,758 * $0.611
= $103,111.138
b) Restocking cost = ordering cost + total carrying cos
t = $8,245+ $103,111.138
= $111,356
c) Total cost of Current inventory policy
= inventory cost + ordering cost + carrying cost
= 675,032 * $92.58+ $8,245* 4 + 168,758 * $0.611
= $62,630,553
d) Economic Ordering Quantity
= SqRt [ (2 * 675,032 * 8,245) / $0.611 ]
= 134,974 units
e) Number of Orders per year = total requirement / EOQ
= 168,758 / 134,974
= 1.25
f) Total cost of Current inventory policy under EOQ policy = inventory cost + ordering cost + carrying cost
= 675,032 * 92.58+ 8,245* 1.25+ 134,974 * 0.611
= 62,630,553
