Suppose that the net requirements for Christmas lights are 50, 83, 27, and 55 for the four weeks in November. The leadtime to manufacture lights is 1 week. The setup cost is $120 and the inventory holding cost per week is $1. There is only one setup each week for production of these lamps, and there is no backordering of excess demand. The shop has enough capacity to produce any number of lights in a week. Assuming no starting inventory, calculate the planned order releases using each of the methods below and calculate the total setup and inventory holding cost over the planning horizon that would be incurred with each method. a. Lot-for-lot scheduling b. EOQ-based lot sizing c.
