Assignment 8 Solution Due Monday, 10/26/09, before class Please note: Please use 3 decimal points for all interstage calculation steps and 2 decimal points for final answers. Please show complete steps in an organized manner. Problem 1 The ePaint store stocks paint in its warehouse and sells it online. The company wants to determine the optimal order order size and total inventory cost for iron-coat paint given an estimated annual demand of 12000 gallons, an annual carrying cost of $1.25 per unit and an ordering cost of $150 per order. They would also like to the number of orders made annually and the time between orders. Solution : Carrying cost h = $1.25 per gallon Ordering cost A = $150 per order Demand D = 12,000 gallons Optimal order quantity is Q opt = [(2*A*D)/ h ] ^1/2 = 1697.05 ~ 1698 units Total annual inventory cost = [(A*D)/Q opt ] + h *Q opt /2 = 2121.3 $ Note here that since the products are purchased and not ordered, there is no production cost involved. The number of orders per year = D/Q
