Demand for Caruso's Frozen Pizza (CFP) is normally distributed. The demand for CFP averages 400 per day with a standard deviation of 200. Weekly demand (5 days) averages 2,000 units with a standard deviation of 555. A Cold can essentially order any quantity of CFP it wants each day. Any order for CFPs arrives 4 days after the order. Further, it costs ACold $0.01 per day to keep a CFP in inventory, while a back order is estimated to cost ACold $0.45.
