- Skip the following:
- Single-Order Quantity: pp. 322-323
- Lumpy Demand: pp. 344-345,
- Box 10.23 Application: pp. 347-348,
- Poisson Distribution: pp. 356-357)

- Inventory includes:
- Raw materials, Supplies, Components, Work-in-progress, Finished goods.

- Located in:
- Warehouses, Production facility, Vehicles, Store shelves.

- Cost is usually 20-40% of the item value per year!

- Positive effects:
- Economies of scale in production & transportation.
- Coordinate supply and demand.
- Customer service.
- Part of production.

- Negative Effects:
- Money tied up could be better spent elsewhere.
- Inventories often hide quality problems.
- Encourages local, not system-wide view.

- Regular (cycle) stock: to meet expected demand between orders.
- Safety stock: to protect against unexpected demand.
- Due to larger than expected demand or longer than expected lead time.
- Lead time=time between placing and receiving order.

- Pipeline inventory: inventory in transit.
- Speculation inventory: precious metals, oil, etc.
- Obsolete/Shrinkage stock: out-of-date, lost, stolen, etc.

- Perpetual (continual):
- Mean and standard deviation (or variance) of demand are known (or can be calculated).
- Use repetitive ordering.

- Seasonal or Spike:
- Order once (or a few time) per season.

- Lumpy: hard to predict.
- Often standard deviation > mean.

- Terminating:
- Demand will end at known time.

- Derived (dependent):
- Depends on demand for another item.

- Turnover ratio:
- Availability:
- Service Level = SL
- Fill Rate = FR
- Weighted Average Fill Rate = WAFR

Annual demand

Turnover ratio=

Average inventory

Expected number of units out of stock/year for item i

SLi = 1 -

Annual demand for item i

- Want product available in the right amount, in the right place, at the right time.
- For 1 item: SLi = Service Level for item i
SLi = Probability that item i is in stock.

= 1 - Probability that item i is out-of-stock.

- For 1 order of several items: FRj = Fill Rate for order j
FRj = Product of service levels for items ordered.

- For all orders: WAFR (Weighted Average Fill Rate)
- Sum over all orders of (FRj) x (frequency of order j).

FRj = SL1 x SL2 x SL3 x ...

- Example: 3 items
- I1 (SL=0.98); I2 (SL = 0.90); I3 (SL = 0.95)

Cost

Level of Service

- Level of Service vs. Cost

- Level of Service (availability) vs. Cost
- Higher service levels -> More inventory.
-> Higher cost.

- Higher service levels -> Better availability.
-> Fewer stockouts.

-> Higher revenue.

- Procurement (order) cost:
- To prepare, process, transmit, handle order.

- Carrying or Holding cost:
- Proportional to amount (average value) of inventory.
- Capital costs - for $ tied up (80%).
- Space costs - for space used.
- Service and risk costs - insurance, taxes, theft, spoilage, obsolecence, etc.

- Out-of-stock costs (if order can not be filled from stock).
- Lost sales cost - current and future orders.
- Backorder cost - for extra processing, handling, transportation, etc.

Inventory carrying cost vs. Order & Stockout cost

- Larger inventory -> Higher carrying costs.
- Larger inventory -> Fewer larger orders.
-> Lower order costs.

- Larger inventory -> Better availability.
-> Few stockouts.

-> Lower stockout costs.

On average 8-12% of items are not available!

- Causes:
- Inadequate store orders.
- Not knowing store is out-of-stock.
- Poor promotion forecasting.
- Not enough shelf space.
- Backroom inventory not restocked.
- Replenishment warehouse did not have enough
- True for only 3% of stockouts.

- Pull:
- Treat each stocking point independent of others.
- Each orders independently and “pulls” items in.
- Common in retail.

- Push:
- Set inventory levels collectively.
- Allows purchasing, production and transportation economies of scale.
- May be required if large amounts are acquired at one time.

- Acquire a large amount.
- Allocate amount among stocking points (warehouses) based on:
- Forecasted demand and standard deviation.
- Current stock on hand.
- Service levels.

- Locations with larger demand or higher service levels are allocated more.
- Locations with more inventory on hand are allocated less.

= Forecast demand at i + Safety stock at i

= Forecast demand at i + z x Forecast error at i

TRi = Total requirements for warehouse i

NRi = Net requirements at i

Total excess = Amount available - NR for all warehouses

Demand % = (Forecast demand at i)/(Total forecast demand)

Allocation for i = NRi + (Total excess) x (Demand %)

= TRi - Current inventory at i

z is from Appendix A

Changing Q by 20% increases cost by a few percent.

- A small change in Q (or N or T) causes very little increase in the total cost.
- Changing Q by 10% increases cost < 1%.
- Changing Q changes N=D/Q, T=Q/D and TC.
- Changing N or T changes Q!

- A near optimal order plan, will have a very near optimal cost.
- You can adjust values to fit business operations.
- Order every other week vs. every 1.82 weeks.
- Order in multiples of 100 if required rather than Q*.

- Produce several products on same equipment.
- Consider one product.
p = production rate (for example, units/day)

d = demand rate (for example, units/day)

- Inventory increases slowly while it is produced.
- Inventory decreases once production stops.
- Stop producing this product when inventory is “large enough”.

Change cycle length to 8 days -> Q/d = 8 days

For example 8 days

P1: Q/d = 8->Q/p = 2.7

P2: Q/d = 12->Q/p = 4.3

P2: Q/d = 24->Q/p = 5.5

Now schedule 3 runs of P1, 2 runs of P2 and 1 run of P3 every 24 days.

Order amount Q when inventory falls to level ROP.

If demand or lead time are larger than expected -> stockout

Variability in demand and lead time may cause stockouts.

d = mean demand

sd =std. deviation of demand

LT = mean lead time

sLT =std. deviation of lead time

s’d =std. deviation of demand during lead time

s’d =

Use safety stock to protect against stockouts when demand or lead time is not constant.

Safety stock = z x s’d

z is from Standard Normal Distribution Table and is based on P = Probability of being in-stock during lead time.

ROP = expected demand during lead time + safety stock

- Could use k=$2/unit to find optimal P
- It would be P = 96.78% as in Case 1!
- Order size would be slightly larger (322 vs. 316).
- Cost would be slightly less ($347.97 vs. $355.58).

- With no safety stock there is a stockout whenever demand during lead time exceeds expected amount (dxLT).
- Therefore: P = 0.5

Out-of-stock: 3 items per year and 0.5 orders/year

SL = 0.9994 -> (1-.9994)x5000 = 3 items/year

P = 0.9678 -> (1-.9678)x5000/322 = 0.5 orders/year

Case 2 & 3:

Out-of-stock: 10.5 items per year and 1.58 orders/year

SL = 0.9979 -> (1-.9979)x5000 = 10.5 items/year

P = 0.90 -> (1-.90)x5000/316 = 1.58 orders/year

Case 4:

Out-of-stock: 89 items per year and 7.9 orders/year

SL = 0.98229 -> (1-.9822)x5000 = 89 items/year

P = 0.50 -> (1-.50)x5000/316 = 7.9 orders/year

D = 5000 units/year d = 96.15 units/week

S = $10/ordersd = 10 units/week

C = $5/unit

I = 20% per year

LT = 2 weeks (constant)

Suppose sLT = 1.2 (not 0 as before)

Now:

For constant lead time (sLT = 0) s’d =14.14

Additional safety stock due to lead time variability

= z(116.24-14.14)

s’d =

LT x sd2 + d2 x sLT2

= 116.24

- For perpetual (continual) demand.
- Treat each stocking point independently.
- Consider 1 product art 1 location.
