Alexis Company uses 800 units of a product per year on a continous basis. The product has a fixed cost of $50 per order, and its carrying cost is $2 per unit per year. It takes 5 days to receive a shipment after an order is placed, and the firm wishes to hold 10 days' usage in inventory as a safety stock. a. Calculate the EOQ b. Determine the average level of inventory (Note: use a 365 day year to calculate daily usage) c. Determine the reorder point d. Indicate which of the following variables change if the firm does not hold the safety stock & Explain: 1) order cost 2) carrying cost 3) total inventory cost 4) reorder point 5) economic order quantity a. Calculate the EOQ eoq=√2*ordering cost*annual demand/annual holding cost per unit =√2*50*800/2 =200 units b. Determine the average level of inventory (Note: use a 365 day year to calculate daily usage) =EOQ/2+buffer inventory =200/2+(2.19*10) =100+22 =122 units c. Determine the reorder point Reorder point= Normal consumption during lead-time + Safety Stock .
