Costs Inventory-Related Costs: Holding & Shortage (Backorder) Costs Shortage Costs: Costs arise as a result of negative inventory level. Expressed in terms of money per unit short per planning period. Shortages can occur when forecasted demand exceeds the system capacity or when demands are higher than anticipated. A unit that is ordered and not delivered on time, but later on, due to shortage is called a backorder. Assumed to be linear. Include special record keeping and handling of backordered items, and loss of revenue and goodwill. Spring 2010 2 IE 324 – AP / S&OP

Primary issues in Aggregate Planning Bottlenecks : inability to respond to sudden changes in demand as a result of capacity restrictions. Example: demand in one month is unusually high, no sufficient capacity to meet that demand. One contribution of AP is to improve effectiveness with the bottlenecks. Example: molding capacity in casting, storage space in frozen food. Spring 2010 6 IE 324 – AP / S&OP
