Question 14. A computer equipment retailer has four retail locations. Currently each outlet manages its ordering independently. Demand at each retail outlet averages 4,000 units per week. Each unit costs $200; the holding cost is 20% per annum. The fixed cost of each order (administrative plus transportation) is $900. Assume 50 weeks in a year. Given that each outlet orders independently and gets its own delivery, determine the optimal order size at each outlet; that is, EOQ (Q*)
