Problem 3:

Our main distribution center in Phoenix, AZ is due to be replaced with a much larger, more modern facility that can handle the tremendous needs that have developed with the city’s growth. Fresh produce travels to the seven store locations several times a day making site selection critical for efficient distribution. Using the data in the following table, determine the map coordinates for the proposed new distribution center.

Problem 10:

Litely Corp sells 1,350 of its special decorator light switch per year and places orders for 300 of these switches at a time. Assuming no safety stocks, Litely estimates a 50% chance of no shortages in each cycle and the probability of shortages of 5, 10, and 15 units as 0.2, 0.15, and 0.15 respectively. The carrying cost per unit per year is calculated as $5 and the stockout cost is estimated at $6 ($3 lost profit per switch and another $3 loss of goodwill or future sales). What level of safety stock should Litely use for this product? (Consider safety stock of 0, 5, 10, and 15 units.)

Safety stock = 0 units

Carrying cost = $0

Total Stockout Costs = (stockout costs * possible units of shortage * probability of shortage * number of orders per year)

S0 = 6 * 5 * .2 * +

6 * 10 * .15 * +

6 * 15 * .15 * =

Safety stock = 5 units

Carrying cost = $5/unit * 5 units

S5 = 6 * 5 * .15 * +

6 * 10 * .15 * =

$60.75

Total cost = Carrying cost + Stockout cost =

$25 + $60.75 = $85.75

Safety stock = 10 units

Carrying cost = $5/unit * 10 units

S10 = 6 * 5 * .15 * =

$20.25

Total cost = Carrying cost + Stockout cost =

$50 + $20.25 = $70.25

Assuming no safety stocks, Litely estimates a 50% chance of no shortages in each cycle and the probability of shortages of 5, 10, and 15 units as 0.2, 0.15, and 0.15 respectively. The carrying cost per unit per year is calculated as $5 and the stockout cost is estimated at $6 ($3 lost profit per switch and another $3 loss of goodwill or future sales). What level of safety stock should Litely use for this product? (Consider safety stock of 0, 5, 10, and 15 units.)

Safety stock = 15 units

Carrying cost = $5/unit * 15 units

Stockout cost = $0

Total cost = Carrying cost + Stockout cost =

$75 + $0 = $75.00

Problem 11:

Presume that Litely carries a modern white kitchen ceiling lamp that is quite popular. The anticipated demand during lead-time can be approximated by a normal curve having a mean of 180 units and a standard deviation of 40 units. What safety stock should Litely carry to achieve a 95% service level?

Problem 11:

Presume that Litely carries a modern white kitchen ceiling lamp that is quite popular. The anticipated demand during lead-time can be approximated by a normal curve having a mean of 180 units and a standard deviation of 40 units. What safety stock should Litely carry to achieve a 95% service level?

To find the safety stock for a 95% service level it is necessary to calculate the 95th percentile on the normal curve. Using the standard Normal table from the text, we find the Z value for 0.95 is 1.65 standard units. The safety stock is then given by:

(1.65 * 40) + 180 = 66 + 180 = 246 Ceiling Lamps

Problem 12:

A new shopping mall is considering setting up an information desk manned by one employee. Based upon information obtained from similar information desks, it is believed that people will arrive at the desk at a rate of 20 per hour. It takes an average of 2 minutes to answer a question. It is assumed that the arrivals follow a Poisson distribution and answer times are exponentially distributed.

Based upon information obtained from similar information desks, it is believed that people will arrive at the desk at a rate of 20 per hour. It takes an average of 2 minutes to answer a question. It is assumed that the arrivals follow a Poisson distribution and answer times are exponentially distributed.

- Find the probability that the employee is idle.
- Find the proportion of the time that the employee is busy.
- Find the average number of people receiving and waiting to receive some information.
- Find the average number of people waiting in line to get some information.
- Find the average time a person seeking information spends in the system.
- Find the expected time a person spends just waiting in line to have a question answered (time in the queue).

It is assumed that the arrivals follow a Poisson distribution and answer times are exponentially distributed.

- Find the average number of people receiving and waiting to receive some information.
- Find the average number of people waiting in line to get some information.
- Find the average time a person seeking information spends in the system.
- Find the expected time a person spends just waiting in line to have a question answered (time in the queue).

- P0 = 1 – / = 1 – 20 / 30 = 0.33 33%
- p = / = 0.66 66%
- Ls = / ( – ) = 20 / (30 – 20) = 2 people
- Lq = 2 / ( – ) = 202 / 30(30 – 20) = 1.33 people
- Ws = 1 / ( – ) = 1 / (30 – 20) = 0.10 hours
- Wq = / ( – ) = 20 / 30(30 – 20) = 0.0667hours

Problem 13:

Assume that the information desk employee in Problem 12 earns $5 per hour. The cost of waiting time, in terms of customer unhappiness with the mall, is $12 per hour of time spent waiting in line. Find the total expected costs over an 8-hour day.

Problem 2:

Assume that the information desk employee in Problem 1 earns $5 per hour. The cost of waiting time, in terms of customer unhappiness with the mall, is $12 per hour of time spent waiting in line. Find the total expected costs over an 8-hour day.

From the solution to Problem 12:

The average person waits 0.0667 hours and there are

160 (20 arrivals * 8 hours) arrivals per day.

Therefore: Total waiting time = 160 x 0.0667 = 10.67 hours

Total cost for waiting = Total waiting time * Cost per hour =

10.67 * $12 = $128 per day.

Salary cost = 8 hours * $5 = $40

Total cost = Salary cost + Waiting cost = $40 + $128 =

$168 per day.
