#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Given,

Annual Demand, D=3600

Cost of the item, c=\$3

Ordering Cost,

Holding Cost,

Number of working days= 250

So, Demand per day=3600/250=14.4

Lead time, LT=5 days

a) Economic Order Quantity

,

Putting all the values we will get Q=438.17 or 439

b) Reorder Point, As the demand here is deterministic we need not have any safety stock

So, the reorder point will be equal to the demand during lead time,i.e 14.4*5=72

d) Total Cost here is the addition of total ordering cost, total holding cost and purchase cost

Total ordering cost= no. of orders* per order cost=

Total holding cost

and the purchasing cost, 3600*3=10800

So, the total cost is 10800+164.31+164.31=11128.62 (Ans)
