Given : R = 300 unit per year,

C1 = Rs. 8 per unit per year.

C2 = Shortage cost = Rs. 10 per unit per year,

C3 – Setup cost = Rs. 500 per replenishment. .

The economic order quantity is

Q° = 259.80 = 260 units.

The maximum shortage level is – (Q° – S°) Here S°:

Maximum inventory level.

∴ (Q°-S°) = 2.59.80- 144.33 =115.46

Maximum shortage level is 115 units.
