1. Answer: 4

Explanation:

daily demand(d) = 750 unjts

Policy variable(¢) = 5/100 = 0.05

Waiting time(w) = 0.15 days

Container capacity(c) = 50 units

Processing time per container(p) = 0.1 days

k = number of containers

Using the formula:

k = [d(w + p)(1 + ¢)] ÷ c

k = [750(0.15 + 0.1) × (1 + 0.05)] ÷ 50

k = [750(0.25) × (1.05)] ÷ 50

k = 196.875 ÷ 50

k = 3.9375 = approximately 4 containers

2. Answer:

4 containers

Explanation:

Given

Average daily demand, d= 750 units

Average time for waiting during production and materials handling, w = 0.15 days

Processing time per container, t = 0.1 days

Container capacity, c = 50 units

Policy variable, α = 5% = 0.05

Number of containers required for component​ B is calculated as follows;

Total Production/Container Capacity.

Total Production = d(w + t)(1 + α)

Total Production = 750 * (0.15 + 0.1) * (1 + 0.05)

Total Production = 196.875

Number of containers = 196.875/50

Number of containers = 3.9375

Number of containers = 4 — approximated
