2)      BB currently uses 3,000 ingots of aluminum each year to manufacure bracelet blanks. The order cost (including shipping) is \$5,000 per order, and carrying costs are \$75 per unit per year. Determine the economic order quantity, the amount of safety stock, and the reorder point for aluminum ingots assuming there is a 1-week lead time and the firm would like a safety stock of 3%.| | | | | | | | |

| Ingots of aluminum per day = | 3000/365 =| 8.22 | ingots| | | | Reorder point = | 8.22*7 =| 57.40| ingots| 147.40| | | 3% safety stock = | 0.03*3000 = | 90| ingots| | |
