Transcript of The Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) Model

The Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) Models
There are three order size models:
The Economic Order Quantity Model (Basic)
The Quantity Discount Model
Basic Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) Model
the simplest of the three models
used to identify the order size that will minimize the sum of the annual costs of holding inventory and ordering inventory.
Total Cost
TC = Total annual cost
D = Demand (usually in units per year)
Q = Order quantity, in units
S = Ordering cost or setup cost
(monetary value/currency)
H = Carrying cost or holding cost
(currency per unit per year)
Deriving the EOQ
After computing the optimum (economic) order quantity, the minimum total cost is then found by substituting EOQ for Q in the Total Cost Function
A local distributor for a national tire company expects to sell approximately 9,600 steel-belted radial tires of a certain size and tread design next year. Annual carrying costs are $16 per tire, and ordering costs are $75. The distributor operates 288 days a year.
a. Determine the EOQ.
b. How many times per
year does the store
c. Determine the length of
an order cycle.
EOQ models identify the optimal order quantity in terms of minimizing the sum of certain annual costs that vary with order size.
The Economic Order Quantity Model with non instantaneous delivery
Assumptions of the basic EOQ model
1. There is only one product involved.
2. Annual usage (demand) requirements are known.
3. Usage is spread evenly throughout the year so
that the usage rate is reasonably constant.
4. Lead time does not vary.
5. Each order is received in a single delivery.
6. There are no quantity discounts.
The Inventory Cycle
Average inventory level and number of orders per year are inversely related: as one increases, the other decreases.
Total Cost =
Annual carrying cost
Annual ordering cost
TC =
Cost Minimization Goal
Using calculus, we take the derivative of the total cost function and set the derivative (slope) equal to zero and solve for Q.
Length of order cycle =
D = 9,600 tires per year
H = $16 per tire per year
S = $75
a. EOQ =
2(9,600) 75
300 tires
b. Number of orders per year:
9,600 tires
300 tires
c. Length of order cycle:
300 tires
9,600 tires
1/32 of a year
which is 1/32 x 288, or 9 workdays
Quantity Discount Model
Minimum Total Cost
The total cost curve reaches its minimum where the carrying and ordering costs are equal.
Annual carrying cost
Annual ordering cost
