HW03_key Sp10.docx Page 1 MGMT 36100: HW 03 40 Points Due: March 1, 2010 Question 1: (12 points – 4 + 4 + 4) - Solve problem 8 as follows: Part a: See the textbook; however round off the optimal lot size to the nearest multiple of 100. D=27,000 [units/month], Q=4,000 [units], H=$.18/unit/month, and S=$60/order. From the EOQ formula we obtain Q 0 = 2DS/H = 4242 [units] 4200 [units]. AIC(Q 0 =4200) = (HQ 0 /2 + SD/Q 0 ) * 12 = $9164.57/year. AIC(Q=4000) = (HQ/2 + SD/Q ) * 12 = $9180.00/year. The difference between AIC(Q 0 =4200) and AIC(Q=4000) is the penalty incurred by the company by ordering at a quantity lower than the optimal quantity (EOQ). So, Penalty = AIC(Q 0 =4200) - AIC(Q=4000) = $9180.00-$9164.57= $15.43/year or $1.29/month. Part b: See the textbook. If they order 10 times a month, then the order quantity should be equal to Q 1 = 27,000/10=2,700 [units]. Let S 1 be the new ordering cost that enables the manager to justify ordering every other day. There are different interpretations of this problem.
