12.2 You decide that the top 20% of the 10 items, based on a criterion of demand times cost per unit, should be A items. (In this example, the top 20% constitutes only 58% of the total inventory value, but in larger samples the value would probably approach 70% to 80%.) You therefore rate items F3 and G2 as A items. The next 30% of the items are A2, C7, and D1; they represent 23% of the value and are categorized as B items. The remaining 50% of the items (items B8, E9, H2, I5, and J8) represent 19% of the value and become C items. Annual  Item Demand Cost (\$) Demand  ×  Cost Classification  A2 3,000      50 150,000 B  B8 4,000      12   48,000 C  C7 1,500      45   67,500 B  D1 6,000      10   60,000 B  E9 1,000      20   20,000 C  F3    500    500 250,000 A  G2    300 1,500 450,000 A  H2    600      20   12,000 C  I5 1,750      10   17,500 C  J8 2,500        5   12,500 C

### What students are saying

• 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.
