What is the inventory control system for Tegdiws? That is, what is the reorder quantity andwhat is the reorder point?Item X is a standard item stocked in a company?s inventory of component parts. Each year thefirm, on a random basis, uses about 2,000 of item X, which costs $25 each. Storage costs, whichinclude insurance and cost of capital, amount to $5 per unit of average inventory. Every time anorder is placed for more item X, it costs $10.a. Whenever item X is ordered, what should the order size be?b. What is the annual cost for ordering item X?c. What is the annual cost for storing item X?Gentle Ben?s Bar and Restaurant uses 5,000 quart bottles of an imported wine each year.
