Newsvendor Model For normal distribution A/F ratio = actual demand/ forecast demand (1) When A/F ratio = 1, it means an accurate forecast (2) When A/F ratio < 1, it means forecast was too high than actual demand (3) When A/F ratio > 1, it means forecast was too low than actual demand (4) Expected actual demand = Average A/F ratio x Forecast demand (5) Std dev of actual demand = Std dev of A/F ratio x Forecast demand Normal distribution has mean = 0 and std deviation = 1 Example: mean = 100, std dev = 25 and Q = 125 Hence, convert to normal distribution by z = Q-mean/ std dev = (125/100)/25 = 1 Both Co and Cu are defined for a single unit not total cost Co is overage cost which refers to the cost incurred when a unit has been ordered but was not sold as no demand for it (i.e. the per-unit cost of over-ordering). Co = Cost - Salvage value = c - v Cu is underage cost which refers to the cost incurred when a unit has NOT been ordered but can be sold as there is demand for it (i.e. the per-unit cost of under- ordering). Cu = Price - Cost = p - c

Fill rate = expected sales/ order quantity own: given 2 figures, take the higher amount as Price and lower amount as cost. No value for salvage value if there is no 3rd figure given which is the lowest. (Ex Christmas ) Example, Mean and Std deviation is on Consultant not General Public. Given $1200 per ticket for consultant and $350 per ticket for general public. Hence, to find the optimal Q for consultant using the template, $1200 is the Price while $350 is the cost. Thus, Cu = $350, while Cu = $1200 - $350 = 850

    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.
