Problem 1: Boreki Enterprise has the following 10 items in inventory. Theodore Boreki asks you, a recent

OM graduate, to divide these items into ABC classification.

A2 3,000 $ 50

B8 4,000 12

C7 1,500 45

D1 6,000 10

E9 1,000 20

F3 500 500

G2 300 1,500

H2 600 20

I5 1,750 10

J8 2,500 5

b) How can Boreki use this information?

c) Boreki reviews the classification and then places item A2 inot the A category. Why might he do so?

Problem 2: Howard Electronics, a small manufacturer of electronic research equipment, has approximately

7,000 items in its inventory and has hired Joan Blasco-Paul to manage its inventory. Joan has determined

that 10% of the items in inventory are A items, 35% are B items, and 55% are C items. She would like to set

Problem 3: Southeastern Bell stocks a certain switch connector at its central warehouse for supplying field

service offices. The yearly demand for these connectors is 15,000 units. Southeastern estimates its annual

holding cost for this item to be $25 per unit. The cost to place and process an order from the supplier is $75.

The company operates 300 days per year, and the lead time to receive an order from the supplier is 2

working days.

a) Find the economic order quantity.

b) Find the annual holding costs.

c) Find the annual ordering costs.

d) What is the reorder point?

Problem 4: Lead time for one of your fastest-moving products is 21 days. Demand during this period

averages 100 units per day.

b) How does your answer change if demand during lead time doubles?

Holding cost per bracket per year: $1.50

Order cost per order: $18.75

Lead time: 2 days

Working days per year: 250

a) Given the above information, what would be the economic order quantity (EOQ)?

b) Given the EOQ, what would be the average inventory? What would be the annual inventory

holding cost?

c) Given the EOQ, how many orders should be made each year? What would be the annual order

cost?

d) Given the EOQ, what is the total annual cost of managing the inventory?

e) What is the time between orders?

f) What is the reorder point (ROP)?

Problem 6: Myriah Fitzgibbon, of L.A. plumbing, uses 1,200 of a certain spare parts that costs $25 for each

b) Identify the economic order quantity and consider the implications for making an error in calculating

economic order quantity?

Problem 7: Arther Meiners is the production manager of Wheel-Rite, a small producer of metal parts.

Wheel-Rite supplies to Cal-Tex, a larger assembly company, with 10,000 wheel bearings each year. This

bearing per year. Wheel-Rite can produce 500 wheel bearings per day. Cal-Tex is a just-in-time

manufacturer and requires that 50 bearings be shipped to it each business day.

(a) What is the optimal production order quantity?

(b) What is the maximum number of wheel bearings that will be in inventory?

(c) How many production runs of wheel bearings will Wheel-Rite have in a year?

(d) What is the total setup + holding cost for Wheel-Rite?

Problem 8: The annual demand for item A is 40,000 units. The ordering cost for each order is $40 and the

1 1-1,499 $2.50 per unit

2 1,500 or more $2.40 per unit

b) The company manager would like to know if the company could take advantage of the discounts given
