Joe needs to purchase malt for his micro-brew production. His supplier charges $35 per delivery (no matter how much is delivered) and $1.20 per gallon. Joe's annual holding cost per unit is 35% of the dollar value of the unit. Joe uses 5,000 gallons of malt per week. Assume Joe operates 52 weeks a year and zero lead time. Suppose Joe is considering making the malt in-house. He anticipates putting in a production process that can make 7,000 gallons of malt per week. The per-gallon cost if they make it in-house will remain at $1.20 per gallon. What is the largest reorder cost such that it will be cheaper for him to make the malt in-house?
