1. One of the products stocked by Joe's Club is JoesCola , which is sold in cases. The demand level for JoesCola is highly seasonal. During the slow season , the demand rate is approximately 650 cases a month, which is the same as a yearly demand rate of 650*12 = 7800 cases. During the busy season , the demand rate is approximately 1300 cases a month, or 15,600 cases a year. The cost to place an order is $5, and the yearly holding cost for a case of JoesCola is $12. According to the EOQ formula, how many cases of JoesCola should be ordered at a time during the slow season ? How many cases of JoesCola should be ordered during the busy season ? b. Suppose Joe's Club decides to use the same order quantity throughout the year, resulting in an order quantity of 150 units. Calculate total holding and ordering costs for the year. Do not consider safety stock in your calculations. To do your calculations, annual demand can be calculated as an average of the slow and busy rates given above.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
