Inventory Costs
Costs associated with inventory:

Cost of the products

Cost of ordering

Cost of hanging onto it

Cost of having too much / disposal

Cost of not having enough (shortage)
Shrinkage Costs

How much is stolen?




2% for discount, dept. stores, hardware,
convenience, sporting goods
3% for toys &amp; hobbies
1.5% for all else
Where does the missing stuff go?

ABC Analysis

Divides on-hand inventory into 3 classes


Basis is usually annual \$ volume


A class, B class, C class
\$ volume = Annual demand x Unit cost
Policies based on ABC analysis
Develop class A suppliers more
 Give tighter physical control of A items
 Forecast A items more carefully

Sensitivity

Suppose we do not order optimal EOQ, but
order Q instead, and Q is p percent larger

Q = (1+p) * EOQ



EOQ = 100, Q = 150, so p = 0.5
50*(0.25/1.5) = 8.33 a 8.33% cost increase

A Question:

If the EOQ is based on so many
horrible assumptions that are never
really true, why is it the most
commonly used ordering policy?
Benefits of EOQ



Profit function is very shallow
Even if conditions don’t hold
perfectly, profits are close to optimal
Estimated parameters will not throw
you off very far
Tabular Aid 5.1







For A = \$3.20 and r = 0.24%
Calculate Dv =total \$ usage (or sales)
Find where Dv fits in the table
Use that number of months of supply
D = 200, v = \$16, Dv=\$3,200
From table, buy 1 month’s worth
Q = D/12 = 200/12 = 16.7 = 17
How do you get a table?

Decide which T values you want to
consider: 1 month, etc.

Use same v and r values for whole table

For each neighboring set of T’s, put them
into
288 A
Dv 
T1T2 r
How do you get a table?

For example, A = \$3.20, r = 0.24

To find the breakpoint between 0.25 and 0.5

Dv = 288 * 3.2 / (0.25 * 0.5 * 0.24)

= 921.6 / 0.03 = 30,720

So if Dv is less than this, use 0.25, more
than that, use 0.5

Find 0.5 and 0.75 breakpoint:

Dv = 288 * 3.2/(0.5 * 0.75 * 0.24) = 10,2240




Some simple calculations to get set up
No thinking to figure out lot sizes
Every product with the same ordering cost
and holding cost rate can use it
Real benefit - simplified ordering


Every product ordered every 1 or 2 weeks, or
every 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 months
Order multiple products on same schedule:



Get volume discounts from suppliers
Save on shipping costs
Savings outweigh small increase from non-EOQ orders
Uncoordinated Orders
Time
Simultaneous Orders
Time
Same T = number months supply allows firm to order at
same time, saving freight and ordering expenses
Adjusted some T’s, changed order times
Offset Orders
Same T = number months supply allows firm to control
maximum inventory level by coordinating replenishments
With different T, no consistency
Quantity Discounts

How does this all change if price
changes depending on order size?

Explicitly consider price:

Order 666 at a time:
Hold 666/2 * 4.50 * 0.2= \$299.70
Order 10,000/666 * 20 = \$300.00
Mat’l 10,000*4.50 = \$45,000.00 45,599.70
Order 1,000 at a time:
Hold 1,000/2 * 3.90 * 0.2=\$390.00
Order 10,000/1,000 * 20 = \$200.00
Mat’l 10,000*3.90 = \$39,000.00 39,590.00
Discount Model
1.Compute EOQ for each price
2.Is EOQ ‘realizeable’? (is Q in range?)
If EOQ is too large, use lowest
possible value. If too small, ignore.
3.Compute total cost for this quantity
4.Select quantity/price with lowest total
cost.

Use same order size

Order before inventory depleted

