Cycle Inventory Safety Stock Inventory Anticipation Inventory Pipeline Inventory Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 09 Cycle Inventory Lot sizing principles 1. The lot size, Q, varies directly with the elapsed time (or cycle) between orders. 2. The longer the time between orders for a given item, the greater the cycle inventory must be. Q+0 Q Average cycle inventory = = 2 2 Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 10
Pipeline Inventory Average demand during lead time = DL Average demand per period = d Number of periods in the items lead time = L Pipeline inventory = DL = dL Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 11 Example 9.1 A plant makes monthly shipments of electric drills to a wholesaler in average lot sizes of 280 drills. The wholesalers average demand is 70 drills a week, and the lead time from the plant is 3 weeks. The wholesaler must pay for the inventory from the moment the plant makes a shipment. If the wholesaler is willing to increase its purchase quantity to 350 units, the plant will give priority to the wholesaler and guarantee a lead time of only 2 weeks. What is the effect on the wholesalers cycle and pipeline inventories?
Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 12 Example 9.1 The wholesalers current cycle and pipeline inventories are Q Cycle inventory = 2 = 140 drills (70 drills/week)(3 weeks) = 210 drills Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 13 Inventory Reduction Tactics Cycle inventory Reduce the lot size
Reduce ordering and setup costs and allow Q to be reduced Increase repeatability to eliminate the need for changeover Safety stock inventory Place orders closer to the time when they must be received Improve demand forecasts Cut lead times Reduce supply chain uncertainty Rely more on equipment and labor buffers Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 14 Inventory Reduction Tactics Anticipation inventory
Match demand rate with production rates Add new products with different demand cycles Provide off-season promotional campaigns Offer seasonal pricing plans Pipeline inventory Reduce lead times Find more responsive suppliers and select new carriers Change Q in those cases where the lead time depends on the lot size Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 15 What is an ABC Analysis? 100 ABC Analysis Percentage of dollar value

09- 16 Economic Order Quantity The lot size, Q, that minimizes total annual inventory holding and ordering costs Five assumptions Demand rate is constant and known with certainty. No constraints are placed on the size of each lot. The only two relevant costs are the inventory holding cost and the fixed cost per lot for ordering or setup. Decisions for one item can be made independently of decisions for other items. The lead time is constant and known with certainty.

Top-selling SKU is a bird feeder. Sales are 18 units per week, the supplier charges $60 per unit. Ordering cost is $45. Annual holding cost is 25 percent of a feeders value. Management chose a 390-unit lot size. What is the annual cycle-inventory cost of the current policy of using a 390-unit lot size? Would a lot size of 468 be better? Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 23 Example 9.2 We begin by computing the annual demand and holding cost as D= (18 units/week)(52 weeks/year) = 936 units H= 0.25($60/unit) = $15 The total annual cycle-inventory cost for the current policy is Q D 390
936 ($15) + ($45) C = 2 (H) + Q (S) = 2 390 = $2,925 + $108 = $3,033 The total annual cycle-inventory cost for the alternative lot size is 936 468 ($15) + ($45) = $3,510 + $90 = $3,600 C= 468 2 Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 24 Example 9.2 Current

Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 25 Calculating EOQ The EOQ formula: EOQ = 2DS H Time Between Orders (TBO): TBOEOQ = EOQ (12 months/year) D Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 26
Example 9.3 For the bird feeders in Example 9.1, calculate the EOQ and its total annual cycle-inventory cost. How frequently will orders be placed if the EOQ is used? Using the formulas for EOQ and annual cost, we get EOQ = 2DS = H 2(936)(45) = 74.94 or 75 units 15 Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 27 Example 9.3 Below shows that the total annual cost is much less than the $3,033 cost of the current policy of placing 390-unit orders. Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall

The current policy is to replenish inventory by ordering in lots of 360 units. Additional information is: D = 60 units per week, or 3,120 units per year S = $30 per order H = 25% of selling price, or $20 per unit per year What is the EOQ? EOQ = 2DS H = 2(3,120)(30) = 97 units

Recall that demand for the bird feeder is normally
distributed with a mean of 18 units per week and a standard deviation in weekly demand of 5 units. The lead time is 2 weeks, and the business operates 52 weeks per year. The Q system called for an EOQ of 75 units and a safety stock of 9 units for a cycleservice level of 90 percent. What is the equivalent P system? Answers are to be rounded to the nearest integer. Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 62 Example 9.8 We first define D and then P. Here, P is the time between reviews, expressed in weeks because the data are expressed as demand per week: D = (18 units/week)(52 weeks/year) = 936 units EOQ 75 (52) = 4.2 or 4 weeks P = D (52) = 936 Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall

Solved Problem 4 b. The total annual cost for the Q systems is Q D C = 2 (H) + Q (S) + (H)(Safety stock) 26,000 440 C= ($9.40) + ($35) + ($9.40)(73) = $4,822.38 440 2 c. Inventory position = On-hand inventory + Scheduled receipts Backorders IP = OH + SR BO = 40 + 440 0 = 480 mixers Because IP (480) exceeds R (373), do not place a new order
Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 82 Solved Problem 5 Suppose that a periodic review (P) system is used at the distributor in Solved Problem 4, but otherwise the data are the same. a. Calculate the P (in workdays, rounded to the nearest day) that gives approximately the same number of orders per year as the EOQ. b. What is the target inventory level, T? Compare the P system to the Q system in Solved Problem 4. c. What is the total annual cost of the P system? d. It is time to review the item. On-hand inventory is 40 mixers; receipt of 440 mixers is scheduled, and no backorders exist. How much should be reordered? Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 83 Solved Problem 5 a. The time between orders is
P= EOQ D (260 days/year) = 440 (260) = 4.4 or 4 days 26,000 Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 84 Solved Problem 5 b. The OM Solver data below shows that T = 812 and safety stock = (1.41)(79.37) = 111.91 or about 112 mixers. The corresponding Q system for the counter-top mixer requires less safety stock.

09- 85 Solved Problem 5 c. The total annual cost of the P system is C= (H) + (S) + (H)(Safety stock) 100(4) 26,000 C= ($9.40) + 100(4) ($35) + ($9.40)(1.41)(79.37) 2 = $5,207.80 d. Inventory position is the amount on hand plus scheduled receipts minus backorders, or IP = OH + SR BO =
40 + 440 0 = 480 mixers The order quantity is the target inventory level minus the inventory position, or Q = T IP = 812 mixers 480 mixers = 332 mixers An order for 332 mixers should be placed.

Managers need to keep close tabs on all room service items, including a special pine-scented bar soap. The daily demand for the soap is 275 bars, with a standard deviation of 30 bars. Ordering cost is $10 and the inventory holding cost is $0.30/bar/year. The lead time from the supplier is 5 days, with a standard deviation of 1 day. The lodge is open 365 days a year. a. What is the economic order quantity for the bar of soap? b. What should the reorder point be for the bar of soap if management wants to have a 99 percent cycle-service level?
c. What is the total annual cost for the bar of soap, assuming a Q system will be used? Copyright 2013 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice Hall 09- 87 Solved Problem 6 a. We have D = (275)(365) = 100,375 bars of soap; S = $10; and H = $0.30.
