Since we assume the forecasts to be unbiased. What is the probability of monthly demand of 37 bicycles? Inventory plan: Average demand per month=439/12=37 bicycles Order cost=\$65/order Cost per bike= 170*60=\$10200 Holding cost=\$10200*1%*12 per year per bicycle=\$1224 per year/bicycle Service level=95% z-value = 1.645 Total demand per year=439 units of bicycle Normal Distribution: A normal distribution is only defined by two parameters: its mean and its variance.

24 439 Orders per years are: ≈ 6. What is the time between the orders? How many orders should ZBC place per year? (15 pts) Holding cost = 170 x 60% x 12% = \$12. what is the ROP? (10 pts) At 95% level of service. Calculate the ROP and total inventory costs.583 + (1.65 439 Average demand per month = ≈ 36.24 2∗439∗65 EOQ is equal to Q*. (15 pts) At 95% level of service.583 12 Standard deviation of the demand = 25.3.65)*(25.36 ≈ 7 69 7 Time between orders: ≈ 0.67 ROP = 36.9385≈79 units Total inventory cost = holding cost + ordering cost = 12.3 𝑤𝑒𝑒𝑘𝑠 12 4.24 + 65 = 77.67) ≈78.24 5. If the lead time for shipping bicycles from China is 2 months.28 ≈ 69 𝑢𝑛𝑖𝑡𝑠 12.583 ≈ 30. Calculate the EOQ for ZBC. or EOQ = (√ ) ≈ 68.65 . we have Z = 1. we have Z = 1.

65)*(25. Prepare a monthly requirement plan for bicycles for 2013 using EOQ policy (including projected on-hand inventory. Alternatively. order receipts and order releases) (20 pts) Q*.67) ≈115. holding low levels of inventory result in low inventory carrying costs and some (high) stockout costs.583 12 Standard deviation of the demand = 25. Holding high levels of inventory (overstock) result in higher inventory carrying costs and low (or no) stockout costs.583*2 + (1. The fixed-order quantity model is a perpetual system. T.52≈116 units 6. the fixed-order quantity model has no review period. . or EOQ = 69 𝑢𝑛𝑖𝑡𝑠  Place an order of 69 units Months 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Gross requirement 8 15 31 59 97 60 39 24 16 15 28 47 On hand: — 7 14 27 53 86 54 34 21 15 13 25 42 Net requirement 1 1 4 6 11 6 5 3 1 2 3 5 Order receipt 69 69 69 69 69 69 Order release 69 69 69 69 69 69 7. Discuss the trade-off between holding costs and lost profit (stockout cost) when selecting an inventory policy. records must be updated to reflect whether the reorder point has been reached. Fixed-time period model has a larger average inventory because it must also protect against stockout during the review period. 439 Average demand per month = ≈ 36. which requires that every time a withdrawal from inventory or an addition to inventory is made.67 ROP = 36. net requirement.
