Default Economic Ordering

There is a field of operations research called "economic ordering quantities." The idea is that based on a number of relevant factors (which may be fixed or random), we can set optimal values for how much to order, when to order, what our expected stock-out costs will be, etc. I wonder how many business owners are aware of this, and how these cloud-based SCM solutions incorporate those EOQ models?

Cloud-based solutions are essential to getting the most value out of your operations. The emergence of the Cloud has created an interconnected world that goes beyond the communications of the early ages of the Internet . A Cloud-based supply chain management solution has several advantages over the traditional model of manual inventory analysis combined with local area purchasing.

Why it is good:
  • More affordable
