The average demand for Left Handed Monkey Wrenches is 260 units per year.  The cost to Dexter Inc for the Left Handed Monkey Wrench is 72 $/item and they sell them for 112 $/item to their customers.  It costs just 5 $/order for Dexter Inc. to place an order to Wilson Worldwide and the lead time is 1 week.   Dexter’s annual inventory holding cost is 20% and for this problem assume there are 52 weeks per year.  

Part 1

What value for Q do you recommend? 

What value for s do you recommend? 

Part 2

Unfortunately, Wilson Worldwide has recently changed its ordering policy and is requiring all orders for Left Handed Monkey Wrenches to be in cases of 25 each. You cannot order partial cases.

What is your new inventory policy for ordering the cases of Left Handed Monkey Wrenches that minimizes total costs. The policy will be in the form of “Order Q CASES of Left Handed Monkey Wrenches when the Inventory Position is equal to s UNITS”.
