# Reorder Level

## So each order should be scheduled to arrive as existing stock runs

out

Reorder level = demand during lead time = lead time x demand per unit time

ROL = LT x D
Revisit Ex 1: Carpet Sell. Given that product lead time is 5 days. Calculate reorder
level
1 (ROL)

## Reorder Level with Longer Lead Time

When lead time is longer than the stock cycle
There is always one order outstanding.
Example:

`
`
`

## when it is time to place order B, there is one order, A

outstanding and due to arrive before B.
` The stock on hand plus the outstanding order must be enough
to last until B arrive or equal the lead time demand
`

## What are the benefit of short lead times? How can

these be achieved in practice?

## Ex 1a: Sweatshirt in Bookstore

The university bookstore purchases sweatshirts with school
logo from a vendor. The vendor sells the sweatshirts to the
store for \$38 a piece. The cost to bookstore for placing an
order is \$120, and the annual carrying cost is estimated as
\$9.5 per unit. 1700 sweatshirts are estimated to be sold
during the year. The vendor has offered the bookstore the
following volume discount:

## Finding the lowest valid cost

Case 2: All costs are constant except the unit cost (or
unit price from supplier) and holding cost
`

## Holding cost can be expressed a

proportion of the unit cost (I)

## For each unit cost (UCi), the minimum

point of the cost curve comes with Qoi

`

## Valid minimum: within the range of valid

order quantities for this particular unit cost

## Invalid minimum: falls outside the valid order

range for this particular unit cost
