Question: Sterling Corporation has an EOQ of 5 000 units The company

Sterling Corporation has an EOQ of 5,000 units. The company uses an average of 500 units per day. An order to replenish the part requires a lead time of five days.
1. Calculate the reorder point, using Equation 20.3.
2. Graphically display the reorder point, where the vertical axis is inventory (units) and the horizontal axis is time (days). Show two replenishments, beginning at time zero with the economic order quantity in inventory.
3. What if the average usage per day of the part is 500 units but a daily maximum usage of 575 units is possible? What is the reorder point when this demand uncertainty exists?
