At the same time, the shipping company that Sears uses, projects a 10% increase in the fixed order (transport) costs from $500 to $550. i. Under these conditions, how often should Sears order air conditions? We convert back to the case of a holding cost of 2 by multiplying both the new holding cost and the new fixed cost by (2/3). This gives a new holding cost per item per period of 2 and a fixed cost of 366.67. This means that we should order 4 times per year. The holding cost is again 1644 and the fixed cost is 1466.67 for a total cost of 3110.67. This needs to be converted back to the case of a holding cost of 3.0 so we multiply by (3.0/2) to get 4666 ii. What will the total cost be under these conditions? 4666. 5 of 8 pages IOE 491, Service Operations Management Winter, 2012, IOE Dept, U. Michigan Name Place your name on all pages now!
