Annual demand (D)=50,000 units

Set-up cost(S)=$85 per batch

Carry cost=$.20 per unit per year

Daily subassembly production rate=1,000

Daily subassembly usage rate=200

a. To minimize cost, how large should each batch of subassemblies be?

b. Approximatley how many days are required to produce a batch?

c.How long is a complete cycle?

d. What is the average inventory for this problem?

e.What is the total inventory cost (rounded to the nearest dollar) of the optimal behavior in this problem?

A complete cycle will last approximately 9014 / 200 = 45 days. Average inventory is 3,605 (not one-half of 9014) and the annual costs will total $721.11.
