A car rental agency uses 96 boxes of staples a;year. The boxes cost $4 each. It costs $10 to order staples, and;carrying costs are $0.80 per box on an annual basis.;Determine;(A) the order quantity that will minimize the sum of;ordering and holding boxes of staples;(B) the annual cost of ordering and carrying the boxes of;staples;110. A service garage uses 120 boxes of cleaning cloths;a year. The boxes cost $6 each. Ordering cost is $3 and;holding cost is 10 percent of purchase cost per unit on an;annual basis.;Determine;(A) The economic order quantity;(B) The total cost of carrying the cloths (excluding;purchase price)(C) The average inventory;111. A shop that makes candles offers a scented candle;which has a monthly demand of 360 boxes. Candles can;be produced at a rate of 36 boxes per day. The shop operates;20 days a month. Assume that demand is uniform;throughout the month. Setup cost is $60 for a run, and;holding cost is $2 per box on a monthly basis.;Determine the following;(A) the economic run size;(B) the maximum inventory;(C) the number of days in a run;112. Estimated demand for gold-?lled lockets at Sam's;Bargain Jewelry and Housewares is 2,420 lockets a year.;Manager Veronica Winters has indicated that ordering cost is;$45, and that the following price schedule applies: 1;to 599 lockets, $.90 each, 600 to 1,199 lockets, $.80 each;and 1,200 or more, $.75 each. What order size will;minimize total cost if carrying cost is $.18 per locket on;an annual basis?;113. Suppose that you are the manager of a production;department that uses 400 boxes of rivets per year. The;supplier quotes you a price of $8.50 per box for an order;size of 199 boxes or less, a price of $8.00 per box for;orders of 200 to 999 boxes, and a price of $7.50 per box for;an order of 1,000 or more boxes. You assign a;holding cost of 20 percent of the price to this inventory.;What order quantity would you use if the objective is to;minimize total annual costs of holding, purchasing, and;ordering? Assume ordering cost is $80/order.;114. The operator of a concession at a downtown;location estimates that he will sell 400 bags of circus peanuts;during a month. Carrying costs are 17 percent of unit price;and ordering cost is $22. The price schedule for bags;of peanuts is: 1 to 199, $1.00 each, 200 to 499, $.94 each;and 500 or more $.87 each. What order size would be;most economical?;115. A dry cleaning?rm uses an average of 20 gallons;of cleaning?uid a day. Usage tends to be normally;distributed with a standard deviation of two gallons per;day. Lead time is four days, and the desired service level is;92 percent. What amount of safety stock is appropriate if a;?xed order size of 600 gallons is used?;116. Suppose that usage of cooking oil at Harry's Fish;Fry is normally distributed with an average of 15 gallons/;day and a standard deviation of two gallons/day. Harry has;just?red the manager and taken over operating the;restaurant himself. Harry has asked you to help him decide;how to reorder cooking oil in order to achieve a service;level which is seven times the risk of stockout (7/8). Lead;time is eight days. Assume that cooking oil can be;ordered as needed.;117. A bakery's use of corn sweetener is normally;distributed with a mean of 80 gallons per day and a standard;deviation of four gallons per day. Lead time for delivery of;the corn sweetener is normal with a mean of six days;and a standard deviation of two days. If the manager wants a;service level of 99 percent, what reorder point should;be used?;118. A manager reorders lubricant when the amount;on-hand reaches 422 pounds. Average daily usage is 45;pounds, which is normally distributed with a standard;deviation of three pounds per day. Lead time is nine days.;What is the risk of a stockout?;119. Given the following information:Order quantity =;300, = 20 units, desired lead time service level =.86.;Find;(A) the expected number of units short per cycle;(B) the annual service level;120. A company can produce a part it uses in an;assembly operation at the rate of 50 an hour. The company;operates eight hours a day, 300 days a year. Daily usage of;the part is 300 parts. The company uses the part every;day. The run size is 6,000 parts. The annual holding cost is;$2 per unit, and setup cost is $100.;(A) How many runs per year will there be?;(B) While production is occurring, how many parts per day;are being added to inventory?;(C) Assuming that production begins when there are no parts;on hand, what is the maximum number of parts in;inventory?;(D) The machine is dedicated to this product. Every so;often, preventive maintenance, which requires six working;days, must be performed on it. Does this interrupt;production cycles, or is there enough time between cycles to;perform the maintenance? Explain.
