week 24. The current aggregate demand requirements for a firm are shown below
for the next six months:

The firm always plans to meet all demand. The firm currently has 120 workers capable of
producing 120 units in a month (1 unit/worker). The workforce can be increased (at a cost of

$500 per worker) or decreased (at a cost of $1,000 per worker). Inventory holding cost is $100
per unit per month. The firm currently has 40 units of inventory on hand, and it would like to
have 40 units available at the end of each month. Regular production cost is $3,000 per unit.
a. What should the aggregate plan be if the inventory holding cost is to be minimized?
b. What is the cost of this plan?

6. JokersRWild makes playing cards in several different styles, but a “standard” deck of cards is
used for planning purposes. The average worker at JokersRWild can make 10,000 sets of decks
of cards per month at a cost of $1.00 per deck during regular production and $1.30 during
overtime. The company currently employs 25 workers. Experience shows that it costs $500 to
hire a worker and $500 to fire a worker. Inventory carrying cost is $.25 per deck per month.
Given the following demand estimate, develop a six-month production plan based on level
production, chase using overtime (no workers will be fired and inventory increases if necessary),
and chase by changing workforce level. The beginning inventory is 50,000, and at least that
amount is desired each month.

The citation provided is a guideline. Please check each citation for accuracy before use.

8. Appliances Inc. is preparing an aggregate production plan for washers for the next four
months. The company’s expected monthly demand is given below in the chart. The company will
have 500 washers in inventory at the beginning of the month and desires to maintain at least that
number at the end of each month. Below is other critical data:
Production cost per unit = $300
Inventory carrying cost per month per unit = $50 (based on ending month inventory)
Hiring cost per worker = $1,000
Firing cost per worker = $2,000
Beginning number of workers = 10
Each worker can produce 100 units per month

Problem 8
New Time Videos (NTV) is a new online video rental service. In the field, it is trying to compete
by offering its customers access to all of the major new video releases in one business day. That
is, if you order a video from NTV, you can expect it in one business day from the time when you
placed the order. When you are done with the video, you simply drop it in the prepaid mailing
envelope and return it. All videos arrive in a sorting facility located in the Midwest where
envelopes with the videos are opened, checked (right video with the right sleeve, no scratches, no
cracks, no dirt on the videos), and made ready to be sent out again. As the manager of this
facility, your goal is to turn the returned videos around in 6 hours (a shift is 8 hours long). You
have the following information:

a. Calculate the expected average flow time (hint: Use Little’s Law).

2. The following table contains data about the inventory for five items at Jones
Corporation. Complete the missing items in the table.

3. Suppose Jones Corporation in the above problem determined that its annual inventory carrying
cost = 18 percent. The item unit cost was as follows:

Item 3 = $5.00
Item 4 = $10.00
Item 5 = $1.00
