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?

  1. Each batch should be 9014 units. It will take slightly over 9014 / 1000 =9 days to make these units. 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.
