1 If the Safety Stock is 5 units and the average demand during lead time is 22
units, then the R.O.P. is?
R.O.P. = ( Average Demand during lead time ) + ( Safety Stock )
=
( 22 ) + ( 5 ) = 27
2.
If the probability of a stock out is 0.05, then the service level is?
Service Level = 1.0
–
Probability of a stock Out
= 1.0
–
0.05 = 0.95
i.e.
95%
3.
If the average demand during lead time is 35 units, the probability that the
demand will be greater than 33 units is 0.03, and management desires a
service level of 97%, then the R.O.P. is?
Service Level of 97% means Probability of a stock out is 3% or 0.03
