Average demand = 500 units Average of the squares of the deviation = 51,250 / 10 = 5,125 Sigma = √ 5,125 = 71.59 units Answer. Sigma = 71.59 units Average demand x = 500 units 11.5) If sigma is 150 units, and the demand during the lead time is 200 units, calculate the safety stock and order point for: a. A 50% service level. b. An 85% service level. a. Safety Stock = (Sigma)(Safety Stock) = (152 units)(0) = 0 OP = DDLT + SS = 200 units + 0 = 200 units a. Safety Stock = (Sigma)(Safety Stock) = (150 units)(1.04) = 156 units OP = DDLT + SS = 200 units + 156 = 356 units Answer. a.- SS = 0 b.- SS = 156 units 11.7) For an SKU, the standard deviation of demand during the lead time is 150 units, the annual demand is 10,000 units, and the order quantity is 750 units. Management says it will tolerate only one stockout per year. What safety stock should be carried? What is the average inventory? If the lead time is 2 weeks, what is the order point? Standard Deviation (σ) = 150 units

    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.
