d) What is the total cost for the most economic order size? Since the annual demand is 9,600, the quantity should be ordered for both suppliers is approximately 28 orders. Supplier 1: Setup cost: 28 x 50 = $1,400 Holding cost: 0.5 x 17 x 9,600 = $81,600 Unit cost: 9,600 x 17 = $163,200 Total cost: $246,200 Supplier 2: Setup cost: 28 x 50 = $1,400 Holding cost: 0.5 x 17.20 x 9,600 = $82,560 Unit cost: 9,600 x 17.20 = $165,120 Total cost: $249,080 Supplier 1 has better total cost value than supplier 2.

According to Heizer, Render, & Munson (2017), some other costs that can affect the inventory decisions are the actual costs of materials purchased (material cost) that included in the inventory cost. While this type of cost doesn’t depend on the order policy, many businesses still incur the annual material cost of demand times price (D x P). In addition, the cost of products (item cost) that can also affect the inventory decision. The type of model that considers this cost is the quantity discount model. This model is used when discounts are given to businesses who ordered larger quantities of products. A quantity discount can be defined as a reduced price for a product when purchased in large quantities. This model has similar calculations to the standard EOQ.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
