The Fast Service Food Mart stocks frozen pizzas in a refrigerated display case. The average daily demand for the pizzas is normally distributed, with a mean of 8 pizzas and a standard deviation of 2.5 pizzas. A vendor for a packaged food distributor checks the market’s inventory of frozen foods every 10 days, and during a particular visit, there were no pizzas in stock. The lead time to receive an order is 3 days. Determine the order size for this order period that will result in a 99% service level. During the vendor’s following visit, there were 5 frozen pizzas in stock. What is the order size for the next order period?
