Unformatted text preview: For example, if the order size is 20 percent above the EOQ (600 units), tic increases by only $333/$20,000 = 1.67%. • If the quantity ordered is less than the EOQ, then total carrying costs decrease, but total ordering costs increase. At q = 400 units, carrying costs fall by $2,000 per year, but ordering costs increase by $2,500.
