Each warehouse experiences daily demand N ( , ) with mean = 100 & std = 50 Assuming Service level of 90% (i.e., z=1.28) and a lead time of one, what is the safety stock at each warehouse? What is total inventory at the four warehouses combined? 44 Risk Pooling -- Example 1 You decide to serve all four markets from a central warehouse. What is the distribution of demand experienced by the warehouse? What is the total safety stock? 55 Risk Pooling or Demand Aggregation Independent demand streams impose greater variability when compared to a pooled demand stream Approach: Adding independent random variables Example Applications: Component commonality in product design Portfolio effects in finance Safety stock 66 The square root rule Key statistical property: you can add variances but not standard deviations Use it (for example): If you are given standard deviation of daily demand and want to calculate standard deviation of weekly demand If you are given the standard deviation of demand at one location, and want to calculate combined standard deviation over several locations 77 What happens if you sum uncertainty from two locations or products? O bj1 0 O bj1 0 1 Distribution of one random variable Distribution of sum of two identical random variables N (10, 2) N (20, x ) Suppose daily demand at one warehouse is normally distributed with mean = 10 and standard deviation = 2 Suppose you combine two identical warehouses into one. What is the mean and standard deviation of demand at the combined warehouse? 88 Risk Pooling -- Example 2 Computer product 1 has hard drive A with daily demand mean = 100 & std = 30 Computer product 2 has hard drive B with daily demand mean = 300 & std = 40 Assume order lead time of 1 day If you want a 98% critical fractile, how much inventory should you keep? (Use z = 2 for 98% service) For product 1: Inventory = For product 2: Inventory = Total inventory = 99 Risk Pooling -- Example 2...
