Inventory Control Deterministic inventory control Stochastic inventory control MRP / Lot sizing / JIT Supply chain management
Reasons for Holding Inventories
Relevant Costs Holding Costs - Costs proportional to the quantity of inventory held.
Relevant Costs (continued) Ordering Cost (or Production Cost). Can include both fixed and variable components. slope = c K
Relevant Costs (continued) Penalty or Shortage Costs. All costs that accrue when insufficient stock is available to meet demand.
Simple EOQ Model Assumptions: 1. Demand is fixed at units per unit time. 2. Shortages are not allowed. 3. Orders are received instantaneously. 4. Order quantity is fixed at Q per cycle. 5. Cost structure: a) Fixed and marginal order costs (K + cx) b) Holding cost at h per unit held per unit time.
Inventory Levels for the EOQ Model
Cost Equation for the EOQ Model
The Average Annual Cost Function G(Q)
Properties of the EOQ Solution
Example Desk production rate = 200 per month Each desk needs 40 screws Screws cost $0.03 Fixed delivery charges are $100 per order 25% interest rate for holding cost What is the optimal order size?
EOQ Cost Function
Quantity Discount Models All Units Discounts: the discount is applied to ALL of the units in the order. Incremental Discounts: the discount is applied only to the number of units above the breakpoint.
All-Units Discount Order Cost Function
Incremental Discount Order Cost Function
All-unit Discount Compute EOQs for all discounts Find realizable EOQ values Compare cost of realizable EOQ with cost at breakpoints
All-Units Discount Average Annual Cost
All-unit Discount Optimality
Incremental Discount Cost structure:
Incremental Discount Establish C(Q) curve Determine cost per unit C(Q)/Q Substitute C(Q)/Q into G(Q) Compute G(Q) for each range Pick feasible solution with lowest cost
Average Annual Cost Function for Incremental Discount Schedule
Incremental Discount Example Demand 600 bags / year Setup cost for ordering: $8 Unit cost –Up to 500: $0.30 –Up to 1000: first 500 at $0.30, remaining at $0.29 –Over 1000: first 500 at $0.30, next 500 at $0.29, remaining at $0.28 Holding cost: 20%
Incremental Discount Example
Properties of the Optimal Solutions For all units discounts, the optimal will occur at the bottom of one of the cost curves or at a breakpoint. One compares the cost at the largest realizable EOQ and all of the breakpoints succeeding it. For incremental discounts, the optimal will always occur at a realizable EOQ value. Compare costs at all realizable EOQs.
