EOQ

Economic Order Quantity

The number of orders a brokerage receives and must fill that minimizes its obligation to keep inventory. The economic order quantity reduces the brokerage's costs to the least possible level.

To begin with, it is important to note that EOQ applies only to those situations where the following conditions hold:

It is well known that the EOQ model is not highly sensitive to variations in the lot size.
Even though the effect of the IHC upon the EOQ is smoothed by taking its square root (Equation 2), nothing smoothes out its impact when it is drastically underestimated and applied to an unnecessary excess of inventory.
Similar to EOQ techniques, lot-sizing techniques focus on balancing order costs and holding costs.
To examine the effect of eating problems, race, and BMI on the EOQ, the GLM Analysis of Variance was again used (Table 5).
According to the EOQ model, a manufacturer places several orders to its suppliers every year, with the size of each order (order quantity) being enough to satisfy the production demand for a certain period of time.
But calculating an EOQ involves a complicated algebraic equation.
Types of statistical/probabilistic approach have included cluster analysis, a stochastic EOQ model (as part of a system for purchasing items for large projects) and augmentation of the linear weighting method with probabilities.
