Question

The Least Unit Cost (LUC) approach produces an irregular interval between replenishment orders on the basis of the number of weeks that will minimize unit cost. (True or False)

Answer: True

Explanation:

In Least cost per Unit (LCU) Lot sizing method the order size is determined such that the demand for the next few periods will be met, with average cost per unit at the minimum.

For each possible number of period, the ordering and carrying costs are computed to arrive at the possible average unit price. The number of periods for which you want to order is determined on the basis of for which number of periods the average unit price is the least.

Example:

For the visible demand, the cost per unit in 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks and 4 weeks will be computed. If the least unit price is estimated at 3 weeks period, the order size will be equal to requirements in the coming 3 weeks.

Because the order size is always determined based on number of periods of requirements (against which the average unit price is minimum), the ordering intervals keep changing.
