Economic Order Quantity

Cantitatea optima din fiecare produs care trebuie comandata pentru a echilibra costurile de proprietate a inventarului si cele de procesare a comenzii; costurile de proprietate cresc odata cu cresterea inventarului, in timp ce costurile de procesare scad.

The optimum quantity of each product that must be ordered to balance the inventory holding costs against the order processing costs; holding costs increase with more inventory, while order processing costs decrease.
