ANSWER A OR B A 1.ANNUAL DEMAND-10000 UNITS C= Rs.20 per unit Co=Rs 200 I=0.3 EOQ=√2*10000*200/20*.3 = √ =2000/6 units 2. SOLUTION USING 5 MONTHS MOVING AVERAGE TH FORECAST FOR 7 MONTH=150+145+142+138+130/5 = 141 UNITS USING 3 MONTHS MOVING AVERAGE TH FORECAST FOR 7 MONTH=150+145+142/3 = 145.66 UNITS B.SHORT NOTES 1. INTEGRATED LOGISTICS-Logistics helps to interlink an enterprise with its customers and suppliers, there is inventory and information flow in this. 2. PARTICIPANTS OF SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT- Suppliers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, customers 3. COLD CHAIN STORAGE-Series of facilities for maintaining ideal temperature storage condition for perishables from point of origin to point of consumption. It consists of pre cooling facilities, refrigerated carriers, packaging etc 4. REVERSE LOGISTICS- Process of moving a product from the point of consumption to the point of origin like replacement of defective goods, repairing used products, replacing expired products etc. 5. ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE-Fastest, easiest and most productive way to conduct business with the transportation, warehousing and logistics industry.
