Economic Order Quantity Model

A
• There is a trade‐off between inventory ordering cost and inventory carrying cost.
• Specifically, the larger the quantity ordered, the lower the per unit cost of ordering (clerical, transportation, handling, etc.), but the higher the carrying cost (warehousing, insurance, property taxes, financing costs, etc.).
• Determining the order size that will minimize total inventory cost is solved using the economic order quantity model.

Total inventory cost = Total order cost +Total carrying cost
