Litespeed transmits its orders to this supplier electronically so the lead time to recieve orders is two days. Litespeed's order cost is about $295 per order and its carrying cost is about $37 per motor per year. The firm maintains a safety stock of motros equal to six days of usage. Assume a 365-day year.
