Capacity issues & Inventory management

Demand Management
1. Use the value of sales as measure of production volume
Group members:
Forecasting Sales Revenues
Expected Costs & Profit
2. Consider new key factors in marketplace
 Demand from the home improvement market
 Demand from house builders
For an average kitchen set,
Selling Price: €2,800
Labor Costs : 20*€15= €300
Materials: €1,600
Total Costs: €1,900
Profit: €900
Number of kitchen sets in 2011: 7,470,000/ 28,00 = 2,668
Total Expected Costs: 2,668*€1,900= 5,068,928
Total Expected Profit: 2,668*€900= 2,401,071
1.More accurate forecasting
Use a better method of measurement
Collect sufficient quantitative data
