(Reorder Point Calculation)
A distributor of large appliances needs to determine the order quantities and
reorder points for the various products it
carries. The following data refer to a
specific refrigerator in its product line:
Cost to place an order- \$100

Holding cost- 20 percent of product cost per year

Cost of refrigerator - \$500 each

Annual demand- 500 refrigerators

Standard deviation during lead time - 10 refrigerators

Lead time- 7 days

Consider an even daily demand and a 365- year day

a) What is the economic order quantity?
b) If the distributor wants a 97 percent service probability, what reorder
point, R, should be used?
(z=1.90 for 97%)
