A preview of the free EOQ calculator
Economic Order Quantity is a formula that calculates the number of units your business should be adding to inventory order. This question is aimed at reducing the total costs of inventory management – including factors like order costs, holding costs, and shortage costs.
In order to calculate your EOQ, you'll need your annual demand, fixed costs, and annual carrying cost per unit. Your fixed costs are the amount you have to spend on procuring stock, covering approval processes, inspections, and so on, while carrying costs are what you spend on storage and utillities.
If you've got your business up and running, you just need to look through your past records to figure out how much you've spent on procuring stock and last year's demand.
To save you time on doing the maths manually for every single item, we've built an EOQ calculator just for you.
