Find out the given stock levels for Danex Holdings as:

i. Minimum stock level

ii. Maximum stock level

iii. Re-order level

Solution

i) Re-order level 

=  Maximum consumption X maximum reorder  period

= 450 units X 5 weeks

= 2,250 units

ii) Maximum stock level 

= reorder level + reorder quantity-(Minimum consumption X minimum reorder period)

= 2250 + 1800 - (150 X3) = 4050 - 450 = 3600 units

iii) Minimum stock level

= Reorder level - (Normal consumption X normal reorder period)

= 2,250 - (300 X 4) = 2250 - 1200 = 1050 units
