Chapter 12: Inventory Control
Purposes of Inventory 1. To maintain independence of operations 2. To meet variation in product demand 3. To allow flexibility in production scheduling 4. To provide a safeguard for variation in raw material delivery time 5. To take advantage of economic purchase-order size
Inventory Costs Holding (or carrying) costs äCosts for capital, storage, handling, “shrinkage,” insurance, etc Setup (or production change) costs äCosts for arranging specific equipment setups, etc Ordering costs äCosts of someone placing an order, etc Shortage costs äCosts of canceling an order, etc
E(1 ) Independent vs. Dependent Demand Independent Demand (Demand for the final end- product or demand not related to other items) Dependent Demand (Derived demand items for component parts, subassemblies, raw materials, etc ) Finished product Component parts
Inventory Systems Single-Period Inventory Model äOne time purchasing decision (Example: vendor selling t-shirts at a football game) äSeeks to balance the costs of inventory overstock and under stock Multi-Period Inventory Models äFixed-Order Quantity Models ä Event triggered (Example: running out of stock) äFixed-Time Period Models ä Time triggered (Example: Monthly sales call by sales representative)
The Newsvendor Model:
Wetsuit example Economics: Each suit sells for p = $180 Seller charges c = $110 per suit Discounted suits sell for v = $90 The “too much/too little problem”: äOrder too much and inventory is left over at the end of the season äOrder too little and sales are lost. äExample: Selling Wetsuits
“Too much” and “too little” costs C o = overage cost (i.e. order “one too many” --- demand < order amount) äThe cost of ordering one more unit than what you would have ordered had you known demand – if you have left over inventory the increase in profit you would have enjoyed had you ordered one fewer unit. äFor the example C o = Cost – Salvage value = c – v = 110 – 90 = 20 C u = underage cost (i.e. order “one too few” – demand > order amount) äThe cost of ordering one fewer unit than what you would have ordered had you known demand – if you had lost sales (i.e., you under ordered), C u is the increase in profit you would have enjoyed had you ordered one more unit. äFor the example C u = Price – Cost = p – c = 180 – 110 = 70
Newsvendor expected profit maximizing order quantity To maximize expected profit order Q units so that the expected loss on the Q th unit equals the expected gain on the Q th unit: Rearrange terms in the above equation -> The ratio C u / (C o + C u ) is called the critical ratio (CR). We shall assume demand is distributed as the normal distribution with mean and standard deviation Find the Q that satisfies the above equality use NORMSINV(CR) with the critical ratio as the probability argument. (Q- )/ = z-score for the CR so Q = + z * Note: where F(Q) = Probability Demand <= Q
Finding the example’s expected profit maximizing order quantity Inputs: äEmpirical distribution function table; p = 180; c = 110; v = 90; C u = 180-110 = 70; C o = 110-90 =20 Evaluate the critical ratio: äNORMSINV(.7778) = 0.765 Other Inputs: mean = = 3192; standard deviation = = 1181 Convert into an order quantity Q = + z * ä = 3192 + 0.765 * 1181 ä4095 Find an order quantity Q such that there is a 77.78% prob that demand is Q or lower.
Single Period Model Example A college basketball team is playing in a tournament game this weekend. Based on past experience they sell on average 2,400 tournament shirts with a standard deviation of 350. They make $10 on every shirt sold at the game, but lose $5 on every shirt not sold. How many shirts should be ordered for the game? C u = $10 and C o = $5; P ≤ $10 / ($10 + $5) =.667 Z.667 =.432 (use NORMSINV(.667) therefore we need 2,400 +.432(350) = 2,551 shirts
Hotel/Airline Overbooking The forecast for the number of customers that DO NOT SHOW UP at a hotel with 118 rooms is Normally Dist with mean of 10 and standard deviation of 5 Rooms sell for $159 per night The cost of denying a room to the customer with a confirmed reservation is $350 in ill-will and penalties. Let X be number of people who do not show up – X follows a probability distribution! How many rooms ( Y ) should be overbooked (sold in excess of capacity)? Newsvendor setup: äSingle decision when the number of no-shows in uncertain. äUnderage cost if X > Y (insufficient number of rooms overbooked). äFor example, overbook 10 rooms and 15 people do not show up – lose revenue on 5 rooms äOverage cost if X < Y (too many rooms overbooked). äOverbook 10 rooms and 5 do not show up; pay penalty on 5 rooms
Overbooking solution Underage cost: äif X > Y then we could have sold X-Y more rooms… ä… to be conservative, we could have sold those rooms at the low rate, C u = r L = $159 Overage cost: äif X < Y then we bumped Y - X customers … ä… and incur an overage cost C o = $350 on each bumped customer. Optimal overbooking level: Critical ratio:
Optimal overbooking level Suppose distribution of “no-shows” is normally distributed with a mean of 10 and standard deviation of 5 Critical ratio is: z = NORMSINV(.3124) = -0.4891 Y = + z = 10 -.4891 * 5 = 7.6 Overbook by 7.6 or 8 Hotel should allow up to 118+8 reservations.
Multi-Period Models: Fixed-Order Quantity Model Model Assumptions (Part 1) Demand for the product is constant and uniform throughout the period Lead time (time from ordering to receipt) is constant Price per unit of product is constant Inventory holding cost is based on average inventory Ordering or setup costs are constant All demands for the product will be satisfied (No back orders are allowed)
Basic Fixed-Order Quantity Model and Reorder Point Behavior R = Reorder point Q = Economic order quantity L = Lead time L L QQQ R Time Number of units on hand 1. You receive an order quantity Q. 2. Your start using them up over time. 3. When you reach down to a level of inventory of R, you place your next Q sized order. 4. The cycle then repeats.
Cost Minimization Goal Ordering Costs Holding Costs Order Quantity (Q) COSTCOST Annual Cost of Items (DC) Total Cost Q OPT By adding the item, holding, and ordering costs together, we determine the total cost curve, which in turn is used to find the Q opt inventory order point that minimizes total costs
Deriving the EOQ Using calculus, we take the first derivative of the total cost function with respect to Q, and set the derivative (slope) equal to zero, solving for the optimized (cost minimized) value of Q opt We also need a reorder point to tell us when to place an order
Basic Fixed-Order Quantity (EOQ) Model Formula Total Annual = Cost Annual Purchase Cost Annual Ordering Cost Annual Holding Cost ++ TC=Total annual cost D =Demand C =Cost per unit Q =Order quantity S =Cost of placing an order or setup cost R =Reorder point L =Lead time H=Annual holding and storage cost per unit of inventory TC=Total annual cost D =Demand C =Cost per unit Q =Order quantity S =Cost of placing an order or setup cost R =Reorder point L =Lead time H=Annual holding and storage cost per unit of inventory
EOQ Class Problem 1 Dickens Electronics stocks and sells a particular brand of PC. It costs the firm $450 each time it places and order with the manufacturer. The cost of carrying one PC in inventory for a year is $170. The store manager estimates that total annual demand for computers will be 1200 units with a constant demand rate throughout the year. Orders are received two days after placement from a local warehouse maintained by the manufacturer. The store policy is to never have stockouts. The store is open for business every day of the year. Determine the following: äOptimal order quantity per order. äMinimum total annual inventory costs (i.e. carrying plus ordering – ignore item costs). äThe optimum number of orders per year (D/Q*)
EOQ Problem 2 The Western Jeans Company purchases denim from Cumberland textile Mills. The Western Jeans Company uses 35,000 yards of denim per year to make jeans. The cost of ordering denim from the Textile Mills is $500 per order. It costs Western $0.35 per yard annually to hold a yard of denim in inventory. Determine the following: a. Optimal order quantity per order. b. Minimum total annual inventory costs (i.e. carrying plus ordering). c. The optimum number of orders per year.
Problem 3 A store specializing in selling wrapping paper is analyzing their inventory system. Currently the demand for paper is 100 rolls per week, where the company operates 50 weeks per year.. Assume that demand is constant throughout the year. The company estimates it costs $20 to place an order and each roll of wrapping paper costs $5.00 and the company estimates the yearly cost of holding one roll of paper to be 50% of its cost. a)If the company currently orders 200 rolls every other week (i.e., 25 times per year), what are its current holding and ordering costs (per year)?
Problem 3 b)The company is considering implementing an EOQ model. If they do this, what would be the new order size (round-up to the next highest integer)? What is the new cost? How much money in ordering and holding costs would be saved each relative to their current procedure as specified in part a)? c)The vendor says that if they order only twice per year (i.e., order 2500 rolls per order), they can save 10 cents on each roll of paper – i.e., each roll would now cost only $4.90. Should they take this deal (i.e., compare with part b’s answer) [Hint: For c]. calculate the item, holding, and ordering costs in your analysis.]
Safety Stocks Probability of stockout (1.0 - 0.85 = 0.15) Cycle-service level = 85% Average demand during lead time zLzL R Suppose that we assume orders occur at a fixed review period and that demand is probabilistic and we want a buffer stock to ensure that we don’t run out
Safety Stock Formula Reorder Point = Average demand + Safety stock Reorder Point = Demand during Lead Time + Safety Stock Demand during lead time = daily demand * L = d*L Safety stock = Z service~level * L Where L = square root of L* 2, where is the standard deviation of demand for one day
Problem 4 A large manufacturer of VCRs sells 700,000 VCRs per year. Each VCR costs $100 and each time the firm places an order for VCRs the ordering charge is $500. The accounting department has determined that the cost of carrying a VCR for one year is 40% of the VCR cost. If we assume 350 working days per year, a lead-time of 4 days, and a standard deviation of lead time of 20 per day, answer the following questions. a)How many VCRs should the company order each time it places an order? b)If the company seeks to achieve a 99% service level (i.e. a 1% chance of being out of stock during lead time), what will be the reorder point? How much lower will be the reorder point if the company only seeks a 90% service level?
Fixed-Time Period Model with Safety Stock Formula q = Average demand + Safety stock – Inventory currently on hand
Multi-Period Models: Fixed-Time Period Model: Determining the Value of T+L The standard deviation of a sequence of random events equals the square root of the sum of the variances
Example of the Fixed-Time Period Model Average daily demand for a product is 20 units. The review period is 30 days, and lead time is 10 days. Management has set a policy of satisfying 96 percent of demand from items in stock. At the beginning of the review period there are 200 units in inventory. The daily demand standard deviation is 4 units. Given the information below, how many units should be ordered?
Example of the Fixed-Time Period Model: Solution (Part 1) The value for “z” is found by using the Excel NORMSINV function.
ABC Classification System Items kept in inventory are not of equal importance in terms of: ä dollars invested ä profit potential ä sales or usage volume ä stock-out penalties 0 30 60 30 60 A B C % of $ Value % of Use So, identify inventory items based on percentage of total dollar value, where “A” items are roughly top 15 %, “B” items as next 35 %, and the lower 65% are the “C” items
