Monthly demand fluctuates between 50 and 80 tons. The lead time for each order is one month, and the economic order quantity is 130 tons. Determine the safety stock appropriate for the chemical bonding agent. At what order point, in terms of tons remaining in inventory, should Andrew and Fulton, Inc. order the bonding agent? Exercise 5 Economic Order Quantity Equation Approach; JIT Purchasing Fiber Technology, Inc. manufactures glass fibers used in the communications industry. The company’s materials and parts manager is currently revising the inventory policy for XL-20, one of the chemicals used in the production process. The chemical is purchased in 10 pound canisters for $95 each. The firm uses 4,800 canisters per year. The controller estimates that it costs $150 to place and receive a typical order of XL-20. The annual cost of storing XL-20 is $4 per canister. Write the formula for the total annual cost of ordering and storing XL-20. Use the EOQ formula to determine the optimal order quantity. What is the total annual cost of ordering and storing XL-20 at the economic order quantity? How many orders will be placed per year? Fiber Technology’s controller Jay Turnbull, recently attended a seminar on JIT purchasing. Afterward he analyzed the cost of storing XL-20 including the cost of wasted space and..
