Question

Review the chapter’s opening feature highlighting Derick Pearson and Felecia Hatcher and their company, Feverish Ice Cream.

Also assume its annual cost of sales is $ 120,000. To cut costs, Derick and Felecia propose to slash inventory to a constant level of $ 15,000 with no impact on cost of sales. They plan to work with suppliers to get quicker deliveries and to order smaller quantities more often.
