12 – 2 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Inventory Management Inventories are important to all types of organizations  They have to be counted, paid for, used in operations, used to satisfy customers, and managed  Too much inventory reduces profitability  Too little inventory damages customer confidence

The Cost of a Lot-Sizing Policy EXAMPLE 12.1 A museum of natural history opened a gift shop which operates 52 weeks per year. Managing inventories has become a problem. 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 feeder’s value.

12 – 24 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Application 12.1 Suppose that you are reviewing the inventory policies on an \$80 item stocked at a hardware store. 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 = = 2 DS H = 97 units 2(3,120)(30) 20 SOLUTION

12 – 31 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Application 12.2 The on-hand inventory is only 10 units, and the reorder point R is 100. There are no backorders and one open order for 200 units. Should a new order be placed? IP = OH + SR – BO =10 + 200 – 0 = 210 R = 100 SOLUTION Decision: Place no new order

12 – 32 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Placing a New Order EXAMPLE 12.3 Demand for chicken soup at a supermarket is always 25 cases a day and the lead time is always 4 days. The shelves were just restocked with chicken soup, leaving an on-hand inventory of only 10 cases. No backorders currently exist, but there is one open order in the pipeline for 200 cases. What is the inventory position? Should a new order be placed? SOLUTION R =Total demand during lead time = (25)(4) = 100 cases = 10 + 200 – 0 = 210 cases IP = OH + SR – BO

12 – 39 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Reorder Point for Variable Demand EXAMPLE 12.4 Let us return to the bird feeder in Example 12.2. The EOQ is 75 units. Suppose that the average demand is 18 units per week with a standard deviation of 5 units. The lead time is constant at two weeks. Determine the safety stock and reorder point if management wants a 90 percent cycle- service level.

12 – 40 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Reorder Point for Variable Demand SOLUTION In this case, σ d = 5, d = 18 units, and L = 2 weeks, so σ dLT = σ d L = 5 2 = 7.07. Consult the body of the table in the Normal Distribution appendix for 0.9000, which corresponds to a 90 percent cycle-service level. The closest number is 0.8997, which corresponds to 1.2 in the row heading and 0.08 in the column heading. Adding these values gives a z value of 1.28. With this information, we calculate the safety stock and reorder point as follows: Safety stock = z σ dLT = 1.28(7.07) = 9.05 or 9 units 2(18) + 9 = 45 units Reorder point= dL + Safety stock = C = (\$15) + (\$45) + 9(\$15) = 75 2 936 75 C = \$562.50 + \$561.60 + \$135 = \$1259.10

12 – 41 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Application 12.3 Suppose that the demand during lead time is normally distributed with an average of 85 and σ dLT = 40. Find the safety stock, and reorder point R, for a 95 percent cycle-service level. SOLUTION Safety stock = z σ dLT = Find the safety stock, and reorder point R, for an 85 percent cycle-service level. R = Average demand during lead time + Safety stock R = 85 + 66 = 151 units 1.645(40) = 65.8 or 66 units Safety stock = z σ dLT =1.04(40) = 41.6 or 42 units R = Average demand during lead time + Safety stock R = 85 + 42 = 127 units

12 – 42 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Reorder Point for Variable Demand and Lead Time Often the case that both are variable The equations are more complicated Safety stock = z σ dLT where d =Average weekly (or daily or monthly) demand L =Average lead time σ d =Standard deviation of weekly (or daily or monthly) demand σ LT =Standard deviation of the lead time σ dLT = Lσ d 2 + d 2 σ LT 2 R =(Average weekly demand  Average lead time) + Safety stock = dL + Safety stock

12 – 43 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Reorder Point EXAMPLE 12.5 The Office Supply Shop estimates that the average demand for a popular ball-point pen is 12,000 pens per week with a standard deviation of 3,000 pens. The current inventory policy calls for replenishment orders of 156,000 pens. The average lead time from the distributor is 5 weeks, with a standard deviation of 2 weeks. If management wants a 95 percent cycle- service level, what should the reorder point be?

12 – 44 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Reorder Point SOLUTION From the Normal Distribution appendix for 0.9500, the appropriate z value = 1.65. We calculate the safety stock and reorder point as follows: σ dLT = Lσ d 2 + d 2 σ LT 2 = We have d = 12,000 pens, σ d = 3,000 pens, L = 5 weeks, and σ LT = 2 weeks (5)(3,000) 2 + (12,000) 2 (2) 2 = 24,919.87 pens Safety stock = z σ dLT = Reorder point = dL + Safety stock= (1.65)(24,919.87) =41,117.79 or 41,118 pens (12,000)(5) + 41,118 =101,118 pens

12 – 45 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Application 12.4 Grey Wolf lodge is a popular 500-room hotel in the North Woods. Managers need to keep close tabs on all of the room service items, including a special pint-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. What should the reorder point be for the bar of soap if management wants to have a 99 percent cycle-service?

12 – 46 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Application 12.4 SOLUTION d =275 bars L =5 days σ d =30 bars σ LT =1 day 283.06 barsσ dLT = Lσ d 2 + d 2 σ LT 2 = From the Normal Distribution appendix for 0.9900, z = 2.33. We calculate the safety stock and reorder point as follows; Safety stock = z σ dLT = Reorder point + safety stock= dL + safety stock (2.33)(283.06) = 659.53 or 660 bars = (275)(5) + 660 = 2,035 bars

12 – 48 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Application 12.5 The Discount Appliance Store uses a continuous review system ( Q system). One of the company’s items has the following characteristics: Demand = 10 units/wk (assume 52 weeks per year) Ordering and setup cost ( S ) = \$45/order Holding cost ( H ) = \$12/unit/year Lead time ( L ) = 3 weeks (constant) Standard deviation in weekly demand = 8 units Cycle-service level = 70%

12 – 49 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Application 12.5 SOLUTION What is the EOQ for this item?

12 – 51 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Application 12.5 Suppose that the current policy is Q = 80 and R = 150. What will be the changes in average cycle inventory and safety stock if your EOQ and R values are implemented? Reducing Q from 80 to 62 Cycle inventory reduction = 40 – 31 = 9 units Safety stock reduction = 120 – 8 = 112 units Reducing R from 150 to 38

12 – 54 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. How Much to Order in a P System EXAMPLE 12.6 A distribution center has a backorder for five 36-inch color TV sets. No inventory is currently on hand, and now is the time to review. How many should be reordered if T = 400 and no receipts are scheduled? SOLUTION IP = OH + SR – BO That is, 405 sets must be ordered to bring the inventory position up to T sets. = 0 + 0 – 5 = –5 sets T – IP =400 – (–5) = 405 sets

12 – 55 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Application 12.6 The on-hand inventory is 10 units, and T is 400. There are no back orders, but one scheduled receipt of 200 units. Now is the time to review. How much should be reordered? SOLUTION IP = OH + SR – BO The decision is to order 190 units = 10 + 200 – 0 = 210 T – IP =400 – 210 = 190

12 – 56 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. P System – Variable demand, Constant LT T = d ( P + L ) + safety stock for protection interval IP covers demand over a protection interval of P + L Use P + L in place of L in the ROP formula ( dL + z σ dLT )  The average demand during the protection interval is d ( P + L ), or Safety stock = zσ P + L, where σ P + L = T = d ( P + L ) + z

12 – 57 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Calculating P and T EXAMPLE 12.7 Again, let us return to the bird feeder example. 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 developed in Example 12.4 called for an EOQ of 75 units and a safety stock of 9 units for a cycle-service level of 90 percent. What is the equivalent P system? Answers are to be rounded to the nearest integer.

12 – 58 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Calculating P and T SOLUTION 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 P = (52) = EOQ D (52) = 4.2 or 4 weeks 75 936 With d = 18 units per week, an alternative approach is to calculate P by dividing the EOQ by d to get 75/18 = 4.2 or 4 weeks. Either way, we would review the bird feeder inventory every 4 weeks.

12 – 59 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Calculating P and T We now find the standard deviation of demand over the protection interval ( P + L ) = 6: Before calculating T, we also need a z value.

12 – 67 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Solved Problem 1 SOLUTION The annual dollar usage for each item is determined by multiplying the annual usage quantity by the value per unit. As shown in Figure 12.11, the SKUs are then sorted by annual dollar usage, in declining order. Finally, A–B and B–C class lines are drawn roughly, according to the guidelines presented in the text. Here, class A includes only one SKU (signatures), which represents only 1/7, or 14 percent, of the SKUs but accounts for 83 percent of annual dollar usage. Class B includes the next two SKUs, which taken together represent 28 percent of the SKUs and account for 13 percent of annual dollar usage. The final four SKUs, class C, represent over half the number of SKUs but only 4 percent of total annual dollar usage.

12 – 86 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Solved Problem 6 Given the desired cycle-service level of 90 percent, the appropriate T value is 322 units. The simulation estimated the average demand during the protection interval to be 289 units, consequently the safety stock is 322 – 289 = 33 units. The annual cost of this P system is C = (\$2) + (\$25) + (33)(\$2) 6(32) 2 50(32) 6(32) = \$192.00 + \$208.33 + \$66.00 = \$466.33

12 – 87 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Solved Problem 7 Consider Zeke’s inventory in Solved Problem 6. Suppose that he wants to use a continuous review ( Q ) system for the filters, with an order quantity of 200 and a reorder point of 140. Initial inventory is 170 units. If the stockout cost is \$5 per unit, and all of the other data in Solved Problem 6 are the same, what is the expected cost per week of using the Q system? SOLUTION Figure 12.14 shows output from the Q System Simulator in OM Explorer. Only weeks 1 through 13 and weeks 41 through 50 are shown in the figure. The average total cost per week is \$305.62. Notice that no stockouts occurred in this simulation. These results are dependent on Zeke’s choices for the reorder point and lot size. It is possible that stockouts would occur if the simulation were run for more than 50 weeks.
