Hello,

Please find below response to your posting.

In making inventory decisions, the purpose of the basic EOQ model is to minimize
a. carrying costs.
b. ordering costs.
c. stock on hand.
d. the sum of carrying costs and ordering costs.
--> There is a tradeoff between ordering and carrying cost. As number of orders increase ordering cost increase but inventory carrying ...
