for its best-selling newly remodeled satellite dish?the SuperRay. Ray estimated the following

 

information from his detailed records on his favorite dish. He got out his statistics textbook that he

 

saved from college and calculated the standard deviation of daily demand to be able to estimate the

 

variation of demand during lead time?useful for calculating the amount of extra dishes to have on

 

hand. He wanted to have a dish available no less than 95% of the time. Use z = 1.65

 

a) Using the EOQ model, how many should Ray order each time? 2 ? 1440 ? $20 = ?

 

= 45 $28

 

b) How much safety stock will Ray need to hold for this item to meet his service goals? = ?02 ? 42 + 12 ? 5=2.24

1440

 

? $28 +

 

? $20 = $630 + 640 = $1,270

ROP=4*5+4=24 (average demand *average lead time + SS level)

 

e) How many orders does Ray need to place over the course of one year? 1440

 

= 32 45

 

f) How much does purchasing and holding safety stock add to total cost in year 1?

2160

 

? $21 +

warehouse. Ray was contacted by his wholesaler who asked whether he would consider

 

changing his order quantity on a line of cereal products. Citing high costs of servicing

offered to negotiate with Ray to change (increase) his order quantity. Ray thought the

 

wholesaler was making about 20% profit on the cereal products and he guessed that the

 

wholesaler?s holding costs were about 25% of its unit costs. Ray looked at his own

 

records and compiled the following:

grease in an aerosol can. The design specifications call for an average of 55 pounds per square

 

inch (psi) of pressure in each can with an upper specification limit of 60 psi and a lower

 

specification limit of 50 psi. A sample is taken from production and it is found that the cans

 

average 51 psi with a standard deviation of 2 psi. What are the two standard deviation Cpk

 

statistics for the upper and lower specification limits? What do these values tell you? The CEO

 

intends to launch a new quality initiative which implies the use of three standard deviation Cpk

 

statistics. How would this change your results and what action would you recommend as a

 

result? Two std. deviation Cpk statistic: = = 60?51

customer interaction, there are four possible causes of complaints: incorrect order served, food

 

cold, long waiting time for food or unfriendly servers. Each week, Blake calculates the rate of

 

?defects? per total customers, and then uses this information to determine his company?s Six

 

Sigma quality level. During the past week, his company served 700 customer. His company

 

received fifteen incorrect order complaints, twenty cold food complaints, 35 long waiting time

 

for food complaints, and seven unfriendly server complaints.
