In terms of on-hand inventory; cycle The reorder point R, is the product of the demand rate The and lead time. and R = λτ λτ 8 Example 4.1 Reorder Point Calculation When the lead time is larger than the cycle: When The lead time is larger than a single cycle. Form the ratio τ/T Consider only fractional remainder of the ratio. Multiply this fractional remainder by the cycle length. Multiply Multiply this result with demand rate to obtain the reorder point. reorder 9 Reorder Point Calculation for Lead Times Exceeding One Cycle Sensitivity Analysis Let G(Q) be the average annual holding and set-up cost Let up function given by G (Q) = K λ / Q + hQ / 2 and let G* be the optimal average annual cost.
