Question Details

(Solved by Expert Tutors) Just about everyone knows that the Home Depot has stores almost everywh


and sells a wide array of things. In fact, the firm operates more than 2,050 full-service stores in the United States, Canada, Puerro Rico, and Mexico. Each store stocks approximately 40,000 different kinds of build-materials, home improvement supplies, and lawn and garden products.Not long ago, Home Depot was considering stocking a new deluxe toilet unit in its bathroom fixtures department. It was trying to broaden its product line to appeal to home improvement contractors, and this item had recentlv been featured in Architectural Digest. The toilet seat contains a special feature. Siting on the seat activates a system that sprays up a fine mist of air freshener and plays music. You can choose the scent and whatever musical selection moves you. (We are not making this up!)The new toilet units had been test marketed successfully, and Home Depot estimated that sales would average 1,000 units per year. It would COSt $100 to keep a unit in inventory for a year, and the fixed reordering cost would be $80. Home Depot's COSt would be $500 per unit.SAFETY STOCKS AND EXPECTED STOCKOUT COSTSEXPECTEDEXPECTEDREORDERSAFETYSTOCKOUTREORDERSAFETYSTOCKOUTPOINTSTOCKCOSTPOINTSTOCKCOSTS100S5~O2010$2001222')0221219214'I2'i'i141418616622'i26161821882102818180QUESTIONS1.What is Home Depot's EOQ for the deluxe toilet units?
