EXAMPLE 5 The maintenance department of a large hospital uses about 816 cases of liquid cleanser annually. Ordering costs are $12, carrying costs are $4 per case a year, and the new price schedule indicates that orders of less than 50 cases will cost $20 per case, 50 to 79 cases will cost $18 per case, 80 to 99 cases will cost $17 per case, and larger orders will cost $16 per case. Determine the optimal order quantity and the total cost. SOLUTION D = S = H = 1. Compute the common EOQ: = TC 70 = Carrying cost + Order cost + Purchase cost = ( Q /2) H + ( D / Q 0 ) S + PD
