The coffeehouse estimates;that it costs $50 in paperwork and labor to place an order for the coffee, and;the annual holding cost is 20% of the purchasing price. (Use 52 weeks/year);a.;What is the economic order quantity (EOQ) for;Colombian coffee?;b.;What is the optimal number of orders per;year?;c.;What is the optimal interval (in weeks);between the orders?;d.;(B;O NUS 5 points) Assume that the current order policy is to buy the beans every;13 weeks. The manager says that the ordering cost of S = $50 is only a;guess. Therefore, he insists on using the current policy. Find the range of S;for which the EOQ you found in part a) would be preferable (in terms of a lower;total replenishment and carrying costs) to the current policy of buying beans;every 13 weeks.;2.

The weight reflects the importance of each factor in the;decision. Calculate the weighted score for each alternative. Which location;would you recommend?
