The president of the wholesale distributor is concerned about the possibility of stockouts causing a loss of customer confidence and loyalty and is interested in maintaining safety stock in inventory to prevent potential stockouts.

Assuming demand is normally distributed with a mean of 15 units and a standard deviation of 3.2 units, and a constant lead time of 4 days, what is the reorder point necessary to provide a 97% level of service?

Assuming demand is constant at 15 units per day, and lead time is normally distributed with a mean of 4 days and a standard deviation of 1.4 days, what is the reorder point necessary to provide a 97% level of service?

Safety Stock and Reorder Point Calculations

Based on the following data, calculate the safety stock quantities and the inventory cost associated with safety stock (based on the item unit cost) for the inventory items at four different service levels (50%, 80%, 90%, and 95%). Develop a table to present the inventory quantities and the safety stock costs at each service level. (Note: All items are independent demand items.)
• Develop a table to present the inventory quantities and the safety stock costs at each service level.
• Assuming that demand occurs at a steady pace every month (in other words, there is no seasonality or cyclical change in the level of demand), calculate the reorder point for each item assuming a lead time of two months and a service level of 90%.
• Develop a table to present the reorder points for all products under these conditions (two month lead time and service level of 90%).

Inventory Item Average Demand (Annual) Sigma (Std. Dev.) of Demand During Lead Time Item Unit Cost

K-12002 100,000 300 $2.00
L-13003 250,000 200 $0.20
N-14004 300,000 400 $1.00
P-21001 50,000 60 $125.00
