### Calculating Order Size

• When material is ordered from a supplier outside the firm, use the EOQ model and extend this with “quantity discount” information when appropriate.

• When sub-assemblies are fabricate within the firm, use the Production Order Quantity (POQ) model

### Production Order Quantity

• Part A-60 is a “sub-assembly”. It is a platform for the computer “motherboard”. The company requires 3000 of these per year. This part is fabricated in the production facility.

• The machine that fabricates the platform

(A-60) can make 30 per day.

• Two hours of labor time are required to do the set-up for the fabricating machine.

• Labor time costs \$100 per hour

### POQ continued

• The item cost of the platform (A-60) is \$20.

• The holding cost is 25% of the item cost.

• What is the “Order Quantity”?

### Inventory Costs for Production Order Quantity

• Holding costs - associated with holding or “carrying” inventory over time

• Setup costs - cost to prepare a machine or process for manufacturing an order

### Setup Costs

• Clean-up costs

• Re-tooling costs

• These costs are primarily determined by the labor time necessary to perform the tasks.

### POQ continued

• We need to derive a formula that minimizes the Total Cost (Annual Holding Cost + Annual Set-up Cost).

• Differences between POQ situation for the A-60 platform and the EOQ situation for the A-61 microprocessor:

We fabricate the item rather than purchase it from a supplier.

We use the item while it is being made.

• This results in a difference in the maximum inventory.

### POQ continued

• In the EOQ model, maximum inventory was equal to the Order Size.

• In the POQ model, maximum inventory is less than the Order Size.

• Why? Because we make the item and use it while it is being made.

• Assume that the Order Size is 300.

• How long would it take to make this order?

• What would the inventory level be at the end of the first day?

• What would the inventory level be when we had finished the order?

• How can we use this information to derive a general formula for Production Order Quantity?

Time

### POQ continued

• Maximum Inventory = (p-d)(# days production)

This is the inventory build-up rate (p-d) times the number of days the fabrication machine makes the part.

• Let “# days production” = t (for “time”)

• Maximum Inventory = (p-d)t = pt-dt

• Order Size = Q = pt; t = Q/p

• Max Inv Level = (p-d)(Q/p) = p(Q/p) – d(Q/p)

= Q – Q(d/p) = Q(1 - d/p)

• Ave Inv Level = Q(1 – d/p)/2

### POQ continued

• The Production Order Quantity formula:

Q* = POQ = sq.rt.(2DS/(H(1-d/p))

See formula 12.7 on page 491

• For part A-60:

• POQ = sq.rt.(2x3000x200/(5(1-10/30))

• POQ = 600 (rounded)

• Calculate AHC, ASC, & Total Annual Cost
