If h represents the holding cost per unit time and A the fixed cost of setup, then we show that the order quantity that minimizes costs per unit time is where D is the rate of demand. 2 h AD Q 2 * = Example A large automobile repair shop installs about 12,500 mufflers/year. All the mufflers are purchased from a single local supplier at a cost of $18.50 each. The shop uses a holding cost based on a 25% annual interest rate. The setup cost for placing an order is $28.
