From this graph you can see that: the total holding cost rises linearly with order size, the total reorder cost falls as the order quantity increases, large infrequent orders give high total holding costs and low total reorder costs, small frequent orders give low total holding costs and high total reorder costs, adding the two costs gives a total cost curve that is an asymmetric 'U' shape with a distinct minimum; this minimum cost shows the optimal order size--which is the economic order quantity, EOQ.
