1 Impact of Product Classes on Logistics Plans and Decisions Consumer Goods Convenient Goods Shopping Goods Specialty Goods Industrial Goods

2 Product Characteristics Impacts on Planning Product life cycle rule Individual characteristics: Weight-Bulk ratio (ration of weight to volume, density; e.g. cotton vs. steel) Value-Weight ratio (coal vs. jewelry) Substitutability (customers reaction when not in stock) Risk characteristics (perishability, flammability, ease of being stolen)

7 Transparency Masters to accompany Operations Management, 5E (Heizer & Render) © 1998 by Prentice Hall, Inc. A Simon & Schuster Company Upper Saddle River, N.J Divides on-hand inventory into 3 classes A class, B class, C class Basis is usually annual $ volume $ volume = Annual demand x Unit cost Policies based on ABC analysis A items receives wide geographic distribution through many warehouses, with high levels of stock availability Give tighter physical control of A items Forecast A items more carefully C items might be distributed from a single, central stocking point(e.g. plant), with lower total stocking levels than for the A items B items would have an intermediate distribution strategy where few regional warehouses are used ABC Analysis

8 Inventory Value of the Products in a Warehouse rule and ABC analysis can be used as the basis of grouping the products in a warehouse y= (1+A)x A+X where, Y= Fraction of cumulative sales X= Fraction of items A: constant to be determined If the relation between X and Y is already known: A= X(1-Y) (Y-X)
