Question

Cheeseburger and Taco Company purchases 18,202 boxes of cheese each year. It costs $23 to place and ship each order and $4.00 per year for each box held as inventory. The company is using Economic Order Quantity model in placing the orders.

Calculate Economic Order Quantity

Answer #1

**Solution:**

Economic order quantity is calculated using the following formula:

= ( 2AO / C ) ^{( ½ )}

Where A = Annual usage units

O = Ordering cost per order

C = Annual carrying cost of one unit

In the given question as per the data given:

A = Annual usage units = 18,202

O = Ordering cost per order = $ 23

C = Annual Inventory carrying cost of one unit = $ 4

Thus Economic order quantity = ( ( 2* 18,202 * $ 23 ) / 4 )
^{( ½ )}

= ( 837,292 / 4 ) ^{( ½ )}

= (209,323 ) ^{( ½ )}

= 457.5183 ( when rounded off to four decimal places )

= 457.52 ( when rounded off to two decimal places )

= 458 orders ( when rounded off to the nearest integer )

**Note:** The square root of 209,323 is calculated
using the following formula in excel

=SQRT(Number) = SQRT(209,323) = 457.5183

Suppose Stanley's Office Supply purchases 50,000 boxes of pens
every year. Ordering costs are $100 per order, carrying costs are
5% of the inventory value, and the price is of $2.00 per box. The

buys pens in order sizes of 20,000 boxes. Should the company accept
the quantity discount? Show your calculations to justify your

Millbridge Hospital buys 10,000 boxes of latex gloves every
year. Each box costs the hospital $7. The cost to place an order
for the gloves—which covers the employee staff time, shipping
costs, the hospital’s receiving center for inventorying, for
example—is estimated at $50 per order. Carrying costs (for storing
the boxes, verifying the inventory periodically, etc.) are
estimated at 50 cents per box per year. Millbridge uses a 6 percent
interest-cost assumption in its calculations. How many boxes should
be...
