# 1)Andre Candess manages an office supply store. One product

### Customer Question

1)Andre Candess manages an office supply store. One product in the store is computer paper. Andre

knows that 10,000 boxes will be sold this year at a constant rate throughout the year. There are 250

working days per year and the lead-time is 3 days. The cost of placing an order is \$30, while the

holding cost is \$15 per box per year. How many units should Andre order each time?

A)500

B)100

C)400

D)200

E)none of the above

2)R.C. Barker makes purchasing decisions for his company. One product that he buys costs \$50 per

unit when the order quantity is less than 500. When the quantity ordered is 500 or more, the price

per unit drops to \$48. The ordering cost is \$30 per order and the annual demand is 7,500 units. The

holding cost is 10 percent of the purchase cost. If R.C. wishes to minimize his total annual

inventory costs, he must evaluate the total cost for two possible order quantities. What are these

two possible quantities? (Round answer to nearest unit.)

A)306 and 50

B)300 and 500

C)300 and 306

D)200 and 306

E)none of the above

3)The demand during the lead time is normally distributed with a mean of 40 and a standard

deviation of 4. If they have calculated a reorder point of 46.60 units, what service level are they

assuming?

B)85 percent

C)90 percent

D)95 percent

E)none of the above

4)Which of the following does not have an impact on EOQ?

A)order cost

B)demand per unit time

C)safety stock

D)all of the above

E)none of the above

5) The annual demand for a product has been projected at 2,000 units. This demand is assumed to be

constant throughout the year. The ordering cost is \$20 per order, and the holding cost is 20 percent

of the purchase cost. Currently, the purchase cost is \$40 per unit. There are 250 working days per

year. Whenever an order is placed, it is known that the entire order will arrive on a truck in 6 days.

Currently, the company is ordering 500 units each time an order is placed. What is the total

holding cost for the year using this policy?

A)\$4,000

B)\$8,000

C)\$2,000

D)\$400

E)none of the above

staplers and other items. The holding cost is \$2 per unit per year. The cost of setting up the

production line for this is \$25. There are 200 working days per year. The production rate for this

product is 80 per day. If the production order quantity is 200 units, what was the daily demand

(rounded to the nearest whole unit)?

A)6 units

B)9 units

C)8 units

D)7 units

E)none of the above

7)Mark Achin sells 3,600 electric motors each year. The cost of these is \$200 each, and demand is

constant throughout the year. The cost of placing an order is \$40, while the holding cost is \$20 per

unit per year. There are 360 working days per year and the lead-time is 5 days. If Mark orders 200

units each time he places an order, what would his average inventory be (in units)?

A)100

B)120

C)200

D)60

E)none of the above

8)Judith Thompson, the manager of the student center cafeteria, has added pizza to the menu. The

pizza is ordered frozen from a local pizza establishment and baked at the cafeteria. Judith

anticipates a weekly demand of 10 pizzas. The cafeteria is open 45 weeks a year, 5 days a week.

The ordering cost if \$15 and the holding cost is \$0.40 per pizza per year. The pizza vendor has a

4-day lead-time and Judith wants to maintain 1 pizza for safety stock. What is the optimal reorder

point?

A)9

B)10

C)4

D)8

E)none of the above

Expert:  R.R. Jha replied 5 years ago.
Ok, no problem. I'll review the questions and let you know.

It will not let me attach.

For 11 it has

Constraint 3: x+3y =48

Constraint 4: x+y+z (< over -) 150

for 16

maximize subject to:

4x +3y (< over -) 360

all variables (> over -) 0

for 19

constraint:1 x+y (> over -) 12

constraint 2: x-2y (> over -)20

constraint 3: x+3y=48

constraint 4: x+y+z (< over -) 150

constraint 5: 2x-3y +z > 75

Ok.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Could you please tell me what your current status is with these questions?
Expert:  R.R. Jha replied 5 years ago.
I can help with most of the questions, but these are quite many given most of them require mathematical calculations. At your current offer I can answer 6-7 questions at a time. That would be 4-5 sets for total of 30 questions. Please let me know if it's acceptable to you as multiple sets.

Regards
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I am not satisfied with that. I have seen your work and you have answered more then 20 for the same amount of money. I would be satisfied with the first 20 questions from this list.
Expert:  R.R. Jha replied 5 years ago.
I'm not sure. I might have done it some time before, or because I'd have worked with him on many questions before.

Anyways, I'd opt out and open this to other experts who might be willing to help with these all questions at your current offer.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
If this was the case you should have told me earlier on. My DEADLINE is tonight.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Not only that but a good tip would have been included for your efforts.

Expert:  R.R. Jha replied 5 years ago.
Ok. Could you specify the amount you're willing to add as bonus before I start working on it?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I was planning on doing a \$10.00 tip. That is over 20%

Expert:  R.R. Jha replied 5 years ago.
Alright, I hope you'd be able to afford more. What time are the answers due?
And as I said before, I'm not sure about a few. I hope that's ok with you.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
The ones you can't answer please leave blank so I know which ones thy are. They are due by midnight.
