A part is produced in lots of 1,000 units. It is assembled from 2 components worth $50 total. The value added in production (for labor and variable overhead) is $60 per unit, bringing total costs per completed unit to $110. The average lead time for the part is 6 weeks and annual demand is 3,800 units, based on 50 business weeks per year. a. How many units of the part are held, on average, in cycle inventory? What is the dollar value of this inventory? b. How many units of the part are held, on average, in pipe line inventory? What is the dollar value of this inventory? (Hint: Assume that the typical part in pipeline inventory is 50 percent completed. Thus, half the labor and variable overhead cost has been added, bringing the unit cost to $80, or $50 + $60>2).
